The BASIC AIRBORNE COURSE is a military static line parachute jump training course designed to give our members, who are not yet airborne qualified, the opportunity to qualify as military parachutists. During our course you will receive an intensive full-immersion theoretical and pratical airborne training, in accordance to military standards, by highly qualified airborne instructors coming from NATO's airborne forces. The aim of this course is to familiarize students with the basic static line parachuting techniques and tactics. These parachuting techniques and tactics are being used worldwide by airborne and special operation forces. During this course the student will acquire airborne capabilities, skills and knowledge required to execute safe parachute jump operations with military round canopy parachute. Static line techniques and tactics, parachute jump procedures, behaviour below the parachute, malfunctions, emergency landings and parachute landing falls will be emphasized. This course will start with the common fundamentals of military static line parachuting and will quickly progress to more advance tactics and techniques. You will perform parachute static line descents with current operational military round canopy parachute systems. You will learn not only the tactical capabilities of a military parachute but more importantly - you will learn the tactical capabilities of yourself! Please note that this course is also open to former paratroopers and military parachutists that need a refresh. Personnel interested to take part in the refresher training have to contact us for details. 



At the end of the course - once you have successfully completed the written examination, you will be ready to move onto the final step - perform the required parachute jump descents to be finally awarded with the European Wings (EPA parachutist badge and international certification) as well as with the Ukrainian Parachutist Wings (official badge and certificate). If eligible, after you have performed the required jumps, as true wings exchange you may be awarded with foreign Airborne Wings by the host Unit’s responsible Training Officers.
