MILITARY GRADE SKYDIVING TRAINING AND EXPERTISE FOR EVERYONE!
EMAIL DELIVERY ISSUES!
ARMY PARACHUTE ASSOCIATION ARRIVAL PROCEDURES!
Security procedures and entry requirements have become stricter across all MOD sites meaning there has been an update to arrival procedures when visiting the APA!
It is imperative that all jumpers - Tandem, Student and Experienced alike, as well as their spectators are booked in! If you do not get booked in by mid-day on the Wednesday before your visit, it is unlikely that you will be allowed on site.
Everyone attending, including spectators, MUST bring photographic ID with them which must be presented when booking in at the guard room! If you do not have this, you will be turned away.
There will be strict entry times - if you plan on jumping, you must arrive between 8am and 9am or between 11:30 and 12:00. If you arrive outside of these times, you will have to wait for an escort which may take some time if the jump programme is under way!
We want to thank everyone attending the APA for their patience and co-operation!
The Army Parachute Association (APA) has charitable objectives aimed at promoting and supporting sports parachuting for military personnel, active and retired. Our Association welcomes civilian members and tandem students and benefits enormously from the skills and diversity that they bring.
NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
We strive for excellence in everything we do and are committed to providing the highest level of training for all our members throughout their skydiving career. For those wishing to learn to skydive for the first time, or to progress to a higher level, the APA can provide safe and exceptional training with an enviable track record.
If you are coming for one of our amazing tandem skydives, please be prepared to make it an all-day event. Whilst we endeavour to get you jumped within four hours, delays can occur. Weather can have the biggest effect as well as unexpected delays, large groups wishing to jump together and camera uptake. We have a huge spectator area, free WiFi and a great cafe in Dare's Diner which will keep you sustained whilst you wait. We just want you to have the best experience and really enjoy your day!
The Army Parachute Association operates at Skydive Netheravon as a not-for-profit organisation continually reinvesting to improve the services and facilities for our members.
“I had a truly awesome experience yesterday, in every way. I was absolutely terrified but felt totally invincible afterwards and I even fell in love with your cameraman, Mike! Cam was lovely too and if I decide to do it again it would have to be with him. It was all very professional, from start to finish. They were a great bunch and I will recommend this to anyone and everyone. I jumped for the MS Trust and secured £723 in sponsorship so far with promises of more to come. It is great to feel alive again.”
“First ever tandem skydive for worthing churches homeless project today, loved it. Special thanks to my instructor Jay and the cameraman trevor who both made me laugh a lot and really relaxed me! definately want to jump again Thanks guys for a great day!”
"First charity tandem skydive done here last Saturday. Despite being extremely scared, the instructors made me feel completely at ease and in safe hands. Highly recommend anyone doing a jump, to do it here. Would definitely consider doing another skydive off the back of this experience despite my fear of heights and flying. Brilliant day and life experience. Thank you."
