earn your wing and staticline licence
Since Paracentrum Texel was founded in 1969 many thousands of military personnel have trained with us to get their wings. Over the years news of our training programme and facilities have spread over our national borders and we’ve started instructing military personnel from other countries as well.
Static line square
During this course you’ll be jumping a square (sometimes called mattress) parachute. Virtually all military divisions currently use this model as the older round parachute has been phased out.
The square parachute enables you to accurate choose your landing site and to land softly. During the course we jump from an altitude of 3500 feet (about 1100 meters).
The course is best value option for those seeking to get their Static Line licence which entitles military personnel to wear the much coveted “wings”. The course is available to non-military jumpers as well.
