The role of the Head of Jump is of vital importance, since he is responsible for the inspection and control over the paratroopers.
After receiving instruction and training, the Leader course no. 131 finished in the National Training Center. 15 military officers and non-commissioned officers achieved this important specialty of Military Parachuting.

The role of the Head of Jump is of vital importance, since he is responsible for the inspection and control over the paratroopers, is in charge of supervising and verifying that the personnel is well equipped and that there is no fault, and also gives the order to initiate the launch during the flight in coordination with the Explorer and guides the aircraft so that the Paratroopers can jump in the indicated zones. Their responsibility before, during and after the flight requires from this specialty a high degree of commitment, coordination and precision as well as supervision when carrying out military operations and jumping exercise.

Under the motto Security, Mastery and Skill, the Military Parachute School will continue directing its efforts to develop different air courses, unique for the National Army, at the Tolemaida Military Fort.
