Red Devils Parachute Regiment Freefall Team
We are proud to support the Red Devils in the work they do raising the profile and awareness of the operations carried out by the Parachute Regiment and British Army.
The Parachute Regiment Freefall Team 'The Red Devils' is the official parachute display team of both the Parachute Regiment (The Paras) and the British Army.
The team's role is to promote both the Parachute Regiment and the British Army in support of recruitment - this is achieved by carrying out over 100 spectacular parachute displays at public events each year and by attracting positive publicity through the media.
The team is manned by 20 serving soldiers from the Parachute Regiment's three full-time battalions: 1, 2 & 3 PARA.
Every member of the team has served a minimum of three years in a Parachute Regiment battalion and has taken part in at least one operational tour of duty in either: The Falkland Islands, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and/or Iraq. http://www.reddevilsonline.com
Our sponsorship this year of Freefly Euphoria had enabled us to test and develop concepts in the wind tunnel environment as well as support the team during the 2011 season and to celebrate their successes at the World Cup in Germany and the BPA Nationals.
Freefly Euphoria was formed in 1995. Since then the team has grown from strength to strength and are currently the British National Skydive Championships Freefly Category A bronze medal winners and the current gold medal winners for the Armed Forces Parachute Championships 2011, as well as achieving 7th in the 2011 World Cup.
The 2011 team is made up of Andy Godwin, Gary Sweeney, Dave Pacey and Matt Gough. http://www.freeflyeuphoria.co.uk/
Lee Birchenough, Scott Calcraft and Fran Sweeney make up the BPS Langar-based free fly team. They are 2011 newcomers to competition and successfully competed in the BPA National freefly category B competition taking home bronze medals. Sky Shot has proudly supported their development and training at BPS Langar and during their US Easter training camp in California and Las Vegas.
