Thank you for inquiring about joining the Phantom Airborne Brigade.
Almost all applicants begin here, as a non-jumper associate member (supporter), as an associate jumping member, and also as a Full Member of the Demonstration Team.
TO JUMP WITH THE PAB, or become a full member, YOU MUST BE a GOVERNMENT Trained MILITARY QUALIFIED PARATROOPER, Active duty or veteran, WITH QUALIFICATIONS STATED AS SUCH ON DD214 /1307 as appropriate
As a supporter you don’t have to be a military qualified paratrooper, however you can be (and we welcome all paratroopers jumping or not) and you understand that you cannot make a jump with the PAB until you provide proof of airborne qualification by way of DD214.
As an Associate member you are expected to participate as often as you can.
You don’t have to purchase your own parachute, but you have to use the PAB supplied air equipment.
You are required to wear the uniform of the day (currently multicam) plus specified boots and helmet.
Your first jump with the PAB will cost $250, which includes the use of equipment and basic refresher training.
Subsequent jumps will be at the prevailing rate (approx. $80), i.e. dependent upon aircraft and packing costs.
If you join within 30 days of being a reunion, or special event jump participant, and after being accepted as an Associate Member, section (4) applies immediately and (3) is waived. (you can join before and wait for the event jump to be your first with the PAB)
You cannot be an active or participating member of any other USA based round parachute jump club or team
Becoming a Full Demonstration Team member requires a greater time commitment to achieve the minimum jumps required for public demonstrations, demonstrated proficiency in canopy control accuracy, etc. and a contribution to equipment costs.
To become a Full Member you need sign off in the above (7) by the CEO and Chief Parachute Jump Instructor.
