Airborne School

The 1st Battalion (Airborne), 507th Infantry Regiment conducts the U.S. Army Airborne School. Airborne School instructors are the world-renowned "black hats" from the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force. Students are trained in the use of static line deployed parachutes.

Students are trained by the same platoon sergeants, section sergeants and squad leaders for all three phases of training, (ground, tower, and jump). The school's teaching philosophy is designed to strengthen unit cohesion, discipline and supervision while producing quality paratroopers.​
