How many jumps before first real (military) HALO jump Can't Post

I was wondering how many jumps before first real HALO jump. I'm talking about military personel, special forces of somekind. And how do you keep yourself current, jumping obviously is only a small portion of things to be current of.

Well, that really depends on your definition of HALO.

What are you trying to get at?

I was wondering how fast can you learn when you have lots of resourcies like, time, windtunnels, good coaching and a specific goal.
I think fun jumpers do need at least C licence.
For HALO I was thinking something close to 30 000 ft night or day.

HALO jumpers aren't classified according to the USPA by default, so no license is issued.

Generally once they're rated for HALO, it isn't much work to get them their USPA A license and get them well on their way to their B.

That being said, it's only a week or so of school, then jumping.

You should look up "military free fall" school. Wink
