Take a leap
For thrill-seeking members, parachuting is an adrenaline-fuelled experience. See the world from a different perspective - and make memories that will last a lifetime!
Parachuting involves jumping from an aircraft attached to a parachute.
To take girls parachuting, you will need to find a British Parachute Association - approved site.
The instructor must hold a BPA qualification.
The instructor should brief participants on:
- the use of safety and other equipment
- the purpose of the flight
- sensations likely to be experienced when parachuting.
Parachuting must be undertaken using the standards and controls laid down by the British Parachute Association (BPA) and must take place at a BPA-approved site.
Parachuting is often undertaken through other charitable organisations as a way of fundraising. In this situation it is still your responsibility to ensure that the activity provider is reputable and operates the activity safely.
