The Ghana Air Force’s special unit, officially known as the Airborne Force (ABF), traces its roots back to 1961, when the Airborne Training School (ATS) was established at the Old Tamale Airport. Originally tasked with training military personnel in parachute jumping and air supply techniques, the ABF has evolved into a formidable force specializing in commando and counter-terrorist operations.

The history of the ABF is rich with milestones, from the first life para descent in Ghana in 1962 to the establishment of a para battalion in 1963. Over the years, the unit has adapted to changing military strategies, demonstrating its agility and effectiveness in the face of evolving challenges.

In a strategic move in 1970, the Para Bn was disbanded, giving rise to the Airborne Force (ABF). The unit, with a focus on commando and counter-terrorist operations, has consistently showcased its capabilities, earning its place as a vital component of Ghana’s defense forces.

The recent Independence Day performance highlighted the ABF’s commitment to excellence, precision, and adaptability. The unit’s relocation to Barwah Barracks and its co-location with the Air Force under Army HQ and 2 Bde for administrative control signify the strategic importance of the ABF in Ghana’s defense architecture.
