Want to earn Portuguese Para wings?

If you are a current, qualified paratrooper this might be of interest to you.  The Commanding General of the Portuguese armed forces has invited the Pathfinder Parachute Group to jump with the Portuguese paras (the “green berets”) during their annual international Jump Festival on the 20th of November.

Participants joining up with the PPG will not be taking part in any of the other tactical exercises or shooting competitions that make up the Jump Festival. They will however get to jump the round canopy equipment used by the Portuguese airborne, and jump from their aircraft under the direction of their jumpmasters – thereby earning the right to wear the covetted Portuguese Para Wings.

More information can be found through the Pathfinder Parachute Group website.
