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.

Association (USPA) and as such are rated to instruct on our

a Safety and Training Advisor (S&TA) and as such is designated
to advise on all aspects of parachuting activity on a dropzone.
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.
