  WHAT IS A PATHFINDER

Today's Pathfinders are highly trained soldiers. They perform as combat air traffic controllers capable of establishing landing zones and drop zones for troops or supplies.

 

They control all air traffic into and out of remote sites or established airfields.  Often they are the first ones into a drop zone or landing zone and the last ones out.  

 

Pathfinders are experts at downed aircraft recovery and personnel extractions. Pathfinders are experts at external sling-load rigging and inspections.

The National Pathfinder Association is a military veteran organization.

Our purpose is to unite Pathfinder-qualified individuals from the U.S. and non-U.S. military.

About
Us



Our mission is to maintain and strengthen the bonds of comradeship distinguished by the members of the Pathfinders;

to provide for the gathering and dissemination of information concerning those members and their periodic assembly in local and national reunions;

to enhance the Pathfinder’s prestige in all military and civilian circles; and to assist active duty, retired, family members of deceased and disabled Pathfinders in achieving a better quality of life for them and their families.

We seek to preserve the fame & glory of the U.S. Army Pathfinder. We continue to reinforce the mission of Pathfinders as necessary force multipliers due to their unique training and capabilities.
