Pegasus Company (P Coy)
Pegasus Company (P Coy) is located at the Infantry Training Centre in Catterick, North Yorkshire and is staffed by serving members of The Parachute Regiment and 16 Air Assault Brigade. P Coy run Pre-Parachute Selection (PPS) courses for both regular and TA personnel.
All Officers and soldiers who wish to serve with Airborne Forces must attend PPS with P Coy.
The P Coy mission is to test the physical fitness, determination and mental robustness, under conditions of stress, to determine whether an individual has the self discipline and motivation required for service with Airborne Forces.
PPS is both physically and mentally demanding. Candidates can expect to be pushed to their limits and beyond. The prize, for those who are successful, is the award of the coveted maroon beret and the opportunity to go on to conduct the Basic Parachute Course at RAF Brize Norton.
