Those who do not jump will never fly

The comprehensive tendering processes was run by the BPA’s tender team comprising Graham Spicer (Chair, IT Strategy Group), Craig Poxon (Development Chair) and Adrian Bond (Communications Chair) who together have expertise in IT and commercial contracts.

BPA, which was founded in 1961, is the national governing body for all sport parachuting in the UK. In 1966, BPA was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee (registered in London, number 875429).  Its Patron is HRH the Prince of Wales. BPA is regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and its position as the governing body for sport parachuting is recognised by the government agency UK Sport.
