Parachute training times...

#1
Hi,
just looking for some clarification, googling all I get is a load 'We'll show you how' DVD pages
Anyway, how long does it take to train and then deploy for the Parachute regiment (2 & 3), I managed to get a 24 week mark off some site, but then that's prior to earning the wings (and what is a para without his wings?

Any help appreciated, cheers guys.
