Taking Your Freefall Addicts Qualifications Back Home

Many of our customers ask what licences or ratings we can issue here. There have also been many question about what the credentials of our location and instructors are. We hope this information will help you out.

Our Operation

Freefall Addicts conduct parachute operations on a dropzone (DZ) that is associated to the British Parachute Association (BPA). The DZ is owned by a British family who also own Target Skysports, the biggest DZ in the UK. The parachute centre is overseen by a BPA Advanced Instructor and as such careful attention is paid to the level of training that is provided.

AFF Courses

All our AFF instructors are qualified by the United States Parachute Association (USPA) and as such are rated to instruct on our learn to skydive courses. The manager of our school is a Safety and Training Advisor (S&TA) and as such is designated to advise on all aspects of parachuting activity on a dropzone.

Our AFF school training system has been given written approval by a UK Centre Chief Instructor (CCI) and as such is considered to be constructed in accordance with the BPA operations manual.

After an AFF course has been completed with the Freefall Addicts we are able to provide the student with direct access to all necessary training to progress to their BPA A-Licence qualification. We are then able to give the student all the forms required to apply for their licences, including a contact in the UK to present their documentation too.

Canopy Courses

Our canopy courses are conducted by a qualified BPA CH1, CH2 and CP1 coach. This allows us to endorse a students logbook once the above course requirements are met and that log book entry can then be presented to a CCI who can issue the appropriate qualification.

Formation Skydiving Courses

Our staff who coach our FS students are all qualified BPA FS Coaches. On return to the UK, the student will need to present their log book complete with the FS Coach's endorsement to a CCI, who will then add the FS1 sticker to their licence book.

Freefly Courses

Our staff who coach our freefly students are all qualified BPA FF Coaches. On return to the UK, the student will need to present their log book complete with the FF Coach's endorsement to a CCI, who will then add either the FF1 or FF2 sticker to their licence book.

Static Line Conversion Courses

All our static line students are passed on to a BPA Category System Instructor at the dropzone where we operate. All conversion course students are moved on to our AFF course.

Tandems

All our tandem students are passed on to BPA rated Tandem Instructors.

Birdman

All our Birdman students are taught by a qualified Birdman rated instructor.
