If you have completed a tandem skydive with us previously then you would have been issued with a “P6” number. This is your 3rd party insurance number, and is valid for a year. It allows you to do as many tandems as you like within that 12 months. It will also cover you for your AFF tandem and your AFF Level 1 skydive.
If you do not have a “P6” insurance number then we will issue you with one. This will cover you for your AFF tandem and your AFF Level 1 – the cost is included in the cost of the training.
This 3rd party insurance covers you for up to 5 million pounds.
If you wish to continue onto AFF Level 2 then you are required to convert this insurance to full BPA membership. The membership year runs from the 1st April each year, and expires at the end of March. Therefore the cost of the conversion depends on when you take it out. Please bring a credit card with you so that you can complete the application form when needed.
Our governing body, the British Parachute Association (BPA) will send you a membership card which you should keep with you. You will also receive a magazine every 2 months from the BPA.
Some people do like to have personal insurance cover which covers skydiving. There are various companies which offer this type of cover so it is best to search the internet to find one which meets your needs.
