Is there any recent airborne school graduates that can tell me their experience at airborne school?. I am due to go soon and I don't know what to expect. Are they doing PT?, how about the PT test?, what do they do evenings after being released?, are weekends free?, can you do PT on your own?.

Ok. Due to COVID at the moment the only PT test conducted now is the pull ups - Flex arm hang and you still run everywhere and social distancing is a must, students are restricted to the battalion area only and due to covid no off post travel is allowed or will be approved and no POVs.
You get your food from the dfac but it must be a take out, nobody eats in the dfac at the moment. After being released for the day you go to the barracks and do your own stuff or go to the tracks to run or do some PT on your own, Saturdays and Sundays are off but you will not be going anywhere too.

SGT Robert Johnson Our class was not so much. Had about 100-160 students thereabouts so we jumped in little batches.

It wasn’t packed.

Good Questions SPC Isaias Lopez!
Sorry, I don’t have any answers. However, I live very close to Bragg; so, please feel free to connect with me and I would be delighted to give you a home-cooked meal & introduce you to some Active Duty 82nd Airborne Soldiers I know!

It's really awkward because in freefall that damn mask keeps blowing into your eyes...

You have to wear a mask while jumping?
I would accidentally lose it but I would probably end up having to get a new one anyway.
