Please complete our really quick survey HERE What does skydiving and parachuting mean to you? And what are BPA's mission and values? There is a lot of change happening in our sport and in BPA. We need views from members, which will help BPA to develop going forward and deliver what members need. So please complete the membership survey - it will take less time than a gear check!
The BPA Wingsuit Nationals 2016 for both Performance and Acrobatics are being hosted by Skydive Netheravon in Wiltshire from 27-30 May. The event is recognised as one of the PPC World Series events for 2016 and is an Open competition to all nationalities. For further information and registration, please see the event's Facebook page.
Congratulations to Mikey Lovemore (pictured) who set 3 new UK records in rounds 3,4 & 5 - 508.07kph, 521kph and 531.9kph at the 2nd Tim Mace Memorial Cup in Speed Skydiving - ISSA World Series in Germany on 6 May 2016. Now he's the 2nd fastest speed skydiver. This was the fastest-ever competition and the first time the top three have had a meet result average >500kph. Congratulations too to Max Hurd (448.9kph finishing 11th) and James Parker (447.64kph finishing 9th), both personal bests. And well done to Lucy Westgarth, fastest female/fastest junior.
