AGE REQUIREMENTS: Must be between the ages of 17 and 35Take your skills to new heights as a Parachute Rigger in the Army National Guard. You will be responsible for the safety of the men, women, and equipment that are using the parachutes you pack. This requires incredible attention to detail, as chutes of varying sizes must be precisely packed and maintained. In addition to packing chutes, you will take responsibility for maintaining the materials of the chute as well. This includes patching, sewing, and storage of the chutes, packs, and web gear.
Did we mention that you’ll be jumping too? To test your chute-packing abilities, you’ll be required to jump in a chute you packed yourself. But don’t worry! Your training, which includes airborne jump training, will fully prepare you for the adventure.

– Inventory, clean, receive, store, and issue all airdrop equipment used in airdrop operations
– Use and maintain machines and tools for fabrication, modification and repair to parachutes and other airdrop equipment

Some of the Skills You’ll Learn

– Knowledge of shop mechanics and science

– Interest in contributing to the safety of others
Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career with parachute rigging and supply companies, commercial parachuting schools, some government agencies, and survival equipment manufacturing firms.
