FAI privacy statement






The international calendar of skydiving events is organised by the International Parachuting Commission (IPC) of the World Air Sports Federation (FAI). For the latest information, see



You may have heard about changes to the arrangements for Sporting Licences for World Records and international competitions. Changes to the recording of Sporting Licence holders now mean that it is not enough to have the sticker in your BPA Licence book; your details will be checked against the FAI Sporting Licence Database and failure to appear on the FAI Database will mean that you will not be able to take part in your chosen event.

To apply for entry to the FAI Database, may we kindly ask that you send your completed Form 110 together with payment direct to BPA HQ (applications sent through a PTO may result in delay), where we will be happy to process and forward your details to RAeC to forward to FAI for upload to the database.

We recommend that this is done at least four weeks before the event in which you wish to take part. See
