I have heard recently that due to the recession and lack of funds, that Paras that pass P Coy are less likely to gain their wings, because due to the few planes available, priority is given to SF. Is this true and realistically how long would this mean waiting to earn my wings?

Get yourself posted to 3 para Mortars where you will quickly be awarded your Brown ones young lad!

Aren't you a bit 'previous' - can't help but notice your avatar!

Agreed, a little thing called "P Coy" awaits. Worry about that first, train hard, keep your mouth shut and do what you are told.

Oh and Good luck!

He's gotta get through ADSC and PRAC yet, he could be an 18 stone whale for all we know. Time will tell.

Isn't the term for non jump trained paras 'Penguin'? I though this had been happening for a few years, it's good to know they het wings still, all be it delayed.

We don't call them anything really though I have heard the term 'penguin' before. It's the hard training in Para Depot and P Coy that makes a Para. Brize Norton is just the finishing touch really and is the easiest part of training.

I thought it was the ability to lose all inhibitions and quite happily take it up the wrong-un that makes a Para? "hats" off to you
