This electronic book on CD-ROM presents a complete reproduction of a major U.S. Army Training Circular, TC 21-24, Rappelling - Tower, Ground, Helicopter, Fast-Rope Insertion and Extraction, Knots, and more. This circular provides basic rappelling techniques to soldiers and leaders for the conduct of rappelling operations. It serves as the primary reference for both resident and nonresident instruction presented to cadets, officer candidates, and both commissioned and noncommissioned officers. This circular also discusses several advanced techniques dealing with infiltration and exfiltration. Safety is always the most important consideration when conducting training. This circular provides guidelines for commanders to conduct operations safely. Commanders at all levels must analyze the complete training event to determine the degree of risk involved to men and or equipment. After determining the risks, risk reduction options or controls will be integrated into the training activity. These options or controls may range from a safety briefing or providing additional safety resources, to selecting other means of accomplishing the mission. Rappelling, FRIES, and SPIES operations are inherently dangerous; therefore, the safety notes and considerations presented in this circular are the minimum acceptable standards. TOWER RAPPELLING - The introduction to rappelling is taught on a static tower. Using the building block approach to training, soldiers systematically progress to more demanding platforms, including taller static towers, and finally to helicopters. The static tower used may vary in size and height from 34 to 90 feet. The concept of learning the basic rappelling techniques before helicopter operations does not vary. (Units may conduct ground training and wall-side tower rappelling without a rappel master. In this case, the unit commander would be responsible for the safety of the rappelling training.) BELAYER - Belay requirements are a subtask of basic rappel requirements. Soldiers must know how to belay before conducting rappelling training. The belayer - · Assumes a position at the base of the lane about one pace away from the tower area. Ensures that the rappel ropes are even with the ground during tower rappels. Loosely holds the rappel rope with both hands so as not to interfere with the rappeller but still be able to stop the rappeller should he fall. Immediately stops the rappeller by pulling downward on the rappel ropes if the rappeller shouts "falling" or loses control of his brake hand during descent. Does not wear gloves to ensure a firm grip on the rappelling rope. Watches the rappeller at all times, and maintains constant voice or visual contact. Wears a helmet to prevent injuries from falling debris. BELAY SAFETY - The belay safety must be ranger- or air assault-qualified. He ensures belay personnel are performing their duties properly. Rappel training requires one belay safety for each two rappel stations. In addition, this disc includes a comprehensive collection of U.S. Army training circulars (TCs), with dozens of detailed military training documents covering a wide variety of topics.
