The US Army Airborne School, located at Ft. Benning, Georgia, is available through Army ROTC to cadets that are enrolled in our program. The course is three weeks long, consisting of a ground week, tower week and jump week. Each week covers different topics, or points of performance, designed to teach you how to jump out of airplanes. It is an exciting non-stop course that will push you to the limit. After making five parachute jumps, you will be awarded the U.S. Army Parachutist Badge. AIRBORNE!!!
Contracted MS I’s and MS-II’s have priority to attend the Basic Airborne Course (BAC), followed by MS III’s who have attended Cadet Leaders Course. Cadets selected to attend BAC are chosen through an Order of Merit List. The OML is created with GPA, APFT Score, Volunteer Hours, and ROTC Participation. Class Instructors will recommend cadets to The Professor of Military Science based on OML standings.
Completion cadets and newly commissioned 2LTs are not eligible to attend BAC.
