Army Air Assault School (AAAS) is 12 days in duration and prepares students for air mobility operations. During the course students are trained and evaluated on combat assault, sling loads, rappelling, physical fitness, and various other critical skills. Students are required to complete an obstacle course and two-mile run day zero before entering the course. Prior to graduation, students must successfully complete written and hands-on examinations, sling load tests, and a 12 -mile foot march in under three hours with full combat load. Prospective candidates are those who will be involved in the conduct of air assault operations. Courses are provided at one of three locations: Camp Rilea (Warrenton, OR); Fort Benning (Columbus, GA); Fort Pickett (Blackstone, VA).
