The Australian Parachute Federation (APF) is the peak body for the administration, regulation and representation of Australian Sport Parachuting. This is achieved by promoting skydiving and maintaining a high level of safety and by improving the standard of Sport Parachuting to encourage participation and excellence in performance.
The APF is the organisation which controls skydiving and parachuting at most civilian operations in Australia. With the approval of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) it sets the standards of operation, conducts competitions, issues licences, certifications and instructor ratings, conducts exams and distributes various publications to keep its members informed of current events and safety standards.
The APF Office is located in Brisbane, Queensland and is supported by volunteers at local and State level. It is affiliated with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale through the Australian Sport Aviation Confederation and International Parachuting Commission.
The APF administers the sport of parachuting through a Deed of Agreement with CASA for which it assists with safety and surveillance duties and controls parachute rigger and packer standards in Australia.
