PARACHUTE JUMP EXERCISE

Sunday, 08 September 2013 08:35

Parachute Jump Exercise with the EPA’s MTC.

On 6-8 September the EPA’s Military Training Center conducted the 3rd Parachute Jump Exercise 2013. Over 30 parachutists of 7 different countries, Italy, Denmark, France, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Indonesia and USA, took part in this event. This exercise was a great opportunity for our members to advance their jump skills, meet fellow paratroopers and old comrades, as well as earn the Czech Army parachute badge and several other military parachutist wings by the host Unit’s responsible JMs. During the event was performed more than 80 "Non-Tactical" and "Tactical" jumps with our new MC1-1C/D parachutes.  A special thanks goes to our jumpmasters and airborne instructors as well as to our parachute riggers that supported this exercise professionally packing the  parachutes to a safe standard. Our Parachute Jump Exercise it's true military static line, round' chute jump event with NATO & other European Army Jump Master guests... Our airborne training is true, realistic and safe, no 'skydiving' with civilian parachutes here - only honest to God true Military Round Parachutes.
