In the UK there are around 25 Parachute Training Organisations approved by and affiliated to the British Parachute Association. These are spread throughout the UK and range from full-time professional centres to weekend clubs run on a voluntary basis. They offer a variety of standard courses for student and provide facilities for experienced parachutists. Most centres can offer video or stills of your skydive.
All courses follow standard British Parachute Association procedures, and are conducted by BPA approved instructors. They can be undertaken at any time of the year, although parachuting can only take place when weather conditions are suitable.
Whatever way you decide to do your jump, enjoy it! To really taste the experience you have to try it for yourself. Sport parachuting is a highly skilled sport which offers many and varied challenges to participants whether jumping purely for pleasure or with a competitive edge. Either way, the sky is the limit!
