PRESIDENT MESSAGE #2

Saturday, 09 May 2020 00:00

Dear Comrades and Friends,

We hope this message finds you well and healthy. We know that this has been a difficult and frustrating time for many of you, but we wanted to let you know that here at the European Paratroopers Association we never stopped working for you, our members. Our Operational Detachment is involved in the fundraising campaign to buy and distribute face masks and other personal protective equipment and medical tools to the COVID-19 hard-hit areas, and our Airborne School is engaged in the production of face masks.

We are continuing to work and plan for you and even though from this month of May we are technically able to re-start our jump events at the European Paratroopers - Airborne School in Slovakia and whilst it gives us all encouragement that some countries are coming out the lockdown, other side, there is still a great deal of uncertainty about when borders will start opening up again and which border procedure will be applied, as well as when international airlines will re-start flying.

Therefore, we have taken the decision to extend the suspension of all jump events and airborne activities until 16th June. The Basic Airborne Courses, the Parachute Rigger Courses and the Parachute Jump Exercises, which was scheduled to run in May, has been postponed to June (please check dates on our calendar). If you have a booking this month we will honour that and move you to June or to another date.

However the other events will go on as scheduled, for now, so do not hesitate to register and take part in our upcoming jump events. You can still book dates through our website, as well as purchase online. We will be in contact with all those who have jumps booked and in case the current restrictions will be prolonged we will make sure that you are rescheduled for a brighter and better time.

We appreciate your cooperation and we will inform you of any further updates, so keep your eye on this website and FB page. We will be in communication at all times and we will be jumping again soon. Until then, we thank you for your support and understanding.

Airborne!

Giulio Festa

President European Paratroopers Association
