The NPTC conducts Primary Airborne Courses and SF-10A Qualification Courses from its hangers at the Dunnellon Airport in Central Florida. These are scenes from a lively training week nicknamed 'Operation Big Drop.' Participants range from first-time jumpers to members of Special Forces from across the globe seeking recertification.
