BPA Chair Martin Soulsby (left) presents Jim Crocker, Chair of the Royal Aero Club Trust and a Vice President of the BPA, with a cheque for a donation of £2,500 from BPA to the Trust. The Trust is a charity and one of its main aims is to help young people to achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential through participation in air sports and recreation. Its 'Flying For Youth' bursaries have helped many young BPA members, aged 16-21, to their next stage of progression in sport parachuting. The application form for the Trust's 2015 Bursaries will be available on the Trust's website from September 2014.
BPA's members' magazine Skydive the Mag has been Highly Commended in the sport & recreation category of the Memcom membership communications awards. Entered by BPA's media partner Archant Dialogue, the Mag 'packs a punch for members of the BPA - 91% of readers say that they keep their copy or pass it on to friends - and we can see why'. Inclusive to the BPA full membership subscription, Skydive the Mag is also available to non-members through Archant's subscriptionsave service.
