We demonstrate with realistic numerical simulations that the gain bandwidth of two pumps fiber optical parametric chirped amplifiers can be twice as large as the one of a single pump configuration. This property is unique to chirped signals and should allow the amplification of tens of femtosecond duration pulses in these amplifiers.
