The test in the main subject of training in the Airborne Forces is one of the most difficult and responsible. In the course of its delivery, the paratroopers must, in 45 minutes, accurately lay the main and reserve parachutes – D-10 and Z-5, respectively.

Further tests are taking place at the airborne complex, where the paratroopers need to demonstrate their single paratrooper training. It consists in the ability to correctly put on and adjust the parachute system, to secure the equipment.
