Advanced Tactical Infiltration Course sharpens freefall techniques

Military freefall is as relevant as ever in operational environments where roads are littered with IEDs, and extensive early-warning networks update the bad guys on troop movements.

“We like to be able to knock on an enemy’s back door without them knowing we’re in their yard,” Sprouse said. “Military freefall offers a way to discreetly infiltrate into an enemy’s territory.”

There’s a progression to working your way through all military freefall courses, and at the end of that progression is the Advanced Tactical Infiltration Course, which is only available to those servicemembers who have conducted at least 100 military freefall jumps, and served as a freefall jumpmaster for at least a year.
