If a pilot or a gunner needs to eject in such circumstances and in the event of a forced landing, crash landing, or ejection over a jungle or a snowy area, training in such survival skills is provided.

The School was founded in Sonmarg, J&K, in 1963 and later it was shifted to Dalhousie in 1994. Later the institution was permanently located in Kasauli in 2013.

The fundamental and advanced survival skills needed in the event of a crash landing or ejection in either peacetime or war are taught to the trainees.

The majority of the IAF pilots successfully complete this course to become fully operational fighter pilots. Theoretical and practical sessions are done together with the delivery of a land survival guide. The training session covers igloo construction, day/night survival, shelter construction, quick meal preparation using accessible ingredients, and rescue pattern signals.

Particularly for fighter aircraft and attack helicopter pilots, the training at the Jungle and Snow Survival School becomes crucial. The goal of the survival skills is to equip the pilot with the ability to endure until the rescue arrives. At J&SS, training from friendly foreign nations also receives training.
