Para trained or not?

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to finding out if someone is entitled to wear wings or not?

This guys story as to how he obtained his wings seems a little bit unconventional

Try PCAU at RAF Brize Norton.

Alternatively:

1. Ask him where and of what style the accommodation was at Brize. Answer - wriggly tin huts by the dog compound at the back of the camp.

2. If he's 'old(er) school' (i.e. used the PX4 parachute) ask him to show you an apex tie of his. Answer - this is not neckwear but was the final attachment on the parachute and is purpose built for use as an attachment to keys, etc.

3. If he's newer school (i.e. LLP) then ask him where he puts the parachute after he's landed. Answer - in a stowage bag attached to the outside of the back of the harness.

I'm sure you'll get plenty of other suggestions as this is often asked.

Paid to do the (iirc) Belgium jumps civvy course now where's the wings? Or there was a thread a while ago where someone mentioned that some specialised medical personell do the course minus p-coy, though to be fair if he isn't getting paid extra for it then he's missed the real reason to have said qualification anyway.

Not to look lush and be able to give it big time charlie bananas, that's why I did it.


Dutch course I believe for the Military jumps

Courses - Paracentrum Texel

•Militairy Courses
Especially for (ex)militairy students we offer Military Round and Military Square courses. Completing one of these courses earns you the right to wear a wing.
