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.
The PASA 2017 South African National Skydiving Championships in Formation Skydiving, Artistic Events, Canopy Formation, Style & Accuracy and Wingsuiting will be hosted by Skydive Rustenburg in the North West Province from 26 April to 1 May 2017.
Members are encouraged to participate. If you are uncertain about the process, speak to a coach at your drop zone or contact the SSA committee members representing your preferred discipline.
