Parachute Association of South Africa

PASA is a non-profit association of members with the mission statement: "To foster, develop and facilitate sport parachuting, in all its facets, within South Africa, in the safest and most progressive manner, on behalf of its members."

For many people the words parachuting and skydiving conjure up images of adrenalin junkies and daredevils with little regard for their own safety. One of the questions most frequently asked of sport parachutists is, "who in their right mind would want to willingly throw themselves out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft?"

In truth, sport parachuting is a disciplined sport that operates within rigidly defined and enforced safety parameters as set out in PASA’s Manual of Procedures. This Manual has been ratified by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) and is the basis upon which PASA has been approved as an Aviation Recreation Organisation. The safety and training standards contained in the manual are on a par or better than international standards and must be adhered to by all affiliated drop zones and members in South Africa.

Theme Search

The fabulous J-Bay Boogie is coming up in December again and promises all we've come to love, and more.  

The beach and boogie beckon, but so does the BIZARRE.  

JBay is known for it's top altitude, load organising and unmatched skydives but, each year, we find ourselves all themed up with cameras rolling, littering good skydiving footage with weather-day antics and ridiculous reputation-ruiners.  

And now the search for this year's boogie theme must begin in earnest.  We need your ideas!  If yours is picked, you might even land yourself a little prize.

Send ideas to and don't be shy - an entire boogie full of skydivers and their new wardrobe are depending on you.
