Latest News

   BPA Validity

BPA Members - we would like to remind all BPA members to check the date of expiry (if you took out a temporary membership and not full) before arriving to jump with us. We can help you arrange the BPA insurance, but we need to fax the form to the BPA and then receive confirmation that the payment has been processed before your insurance is valid, which in turn enables you to jump. Please remember that we cannot do any of this on the weekend days when the BPA offices are closed, and mid-week days this process can easily take half a day, meaning you are losing valuable jumping hours. We advise that you double check your BPA validity before arriving to the DZ and if possible arrange your BPA membership in the UK before flying to Spain. Also we would like to remind you that only British citizens can use their BPA membership insurance outside of the UK and the cover is Third Party Liability only, there is no personal accident cover, so please be sure to take out additional insurance and also bring your EU Health card with you on your trip.
