I thought I would make a detailed thread about Air Assault school for those who are interested. I'm stationed here at Fort Campbell, and the brigade I am in you do Air Assault PT for a week before attending the school. There are four prerequisites, (a PT test, a Day 1-10 packing list layout, the obstacle course and a 12 mile foot march in under 3 hours). If you can knock these out in a week you fill out your 4137 and your good to go. If not you keep going to Air Assault PT until you can.
I did my Day Zero yesterday and reported to the school at 0445, they call the whole group up to a horseshoe formation for a quick brief and then fall you in by brigades. They call out your name and give a roster number ID tag which you attach to your belt loop. You head through the "arches" and start sounding off with "Air Assault" on every left foot. They give you a quick smoke by groups which includes Air Assault pushups (thumbs touching), flutter kicks and all that good stuff. Then you fall in to a big formation and you go inside the classroom where they brief you further about the school and what to expect.
After that you head outside and put on your PT shoes for your 2 mile run, which you have 18 minutes to complete (sound familiar?). After that you put your boots back on and head to the obstacle course, they show you how to do every obstacle. They give you a good smoking then you run through it. There are two mandatory ones, The Tough One(rope climb) and the confidence climb, and then 7 minor ones. You have two attempts at each obstacle. After your done you head back to the classroom and they give you a handout on your Day 1 layout and what it should look like. They show in detail how everything should look, they explain the points system and how you enter and exit the classroom.
I will try my best to update this thread everyday with new information.
