All parachute dropping from civil registered aircraft over the UK is regulated by the CAA and must be conducted in accordance with the requirements set in the Air Navigation Order.
CAP 660 Parachuting is a comprehensive source of information and it contains the rules, regulations and provides guidance on:
CAP 403 Flying Displays and Special Events: A guide to safety and administrative arrangements includes further information in relation to parachuting as part of a flying display or event. The British Parachute Association (BPA) has compiled BPA Operations Manual - July 2016, which details an acceptable operating standard.
If you are applying for the grant or renewal of a parachuting permission, you should initially contact us by email using this address email@example.com.
SRG1313 Application for Grant or Renewal of Parachuting Permission, together with the appropriate fee, should be sent to the British Parachute Association (BPA).
At present, all parachuting clubs and teams work through the BPA. Applicants not wishing to apply to the BPA should apply directly to the CAA using SRG1313 and attaching it to an email and sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The minimum notice required by us before a parachuting permission and any related exemptions can be granted is 30 working days from when we receive your application.
Details of costs can be found in the Scheme of Charges.
