U.S. Airmen Prepare to board a C-23 Sherpa during the Military Freefall Jumpmaster Course at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., June 28, 2016. The course will graduate 12 Airmen at the end of its fifth 3-week-long rotation; reaching a total number of 58 certified jumpmasters. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman Nathan H. Barbour/Released) Mastering the jump
In order to run a combat free fall jump and deploy Airmen safely from an aircraft at high altitudes, there has to be someone specially trained to direct the operation. They must be highly proficient in every component of the jump process, from ensuring equipment is donned properly, to coordinating with the aircrew during the release so jumpers land on the designated drop zone. In the past, the only place to receive the formal training required to lead a jump was the Military Freefall School at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona.
