The morning was dedicated to a preview of all the USAFA airmanship programs. You’ll see a lot of photos like the one below:
They got to see demonstrations from Jump, Soaring, and Powered Flight.
Jump is the only program in the entire world where the first jump is an unassisted freefall. Because of this unique difference all students, cadet or staff who go through this program will have roughly 40 hours of ground training before their first jump.
The Cadets who complete the Soaring program and get their wings are the Air Force's youngest instructor pilots.
Powered Flight is a capstone course that serves as a culmination of a cadet’s aviation education.
All of these programs are available to them as cadets and we will be covering your cadets in all of them starting next summer.
These basics approved of the morning! Because they all were intermixed we put them not only in the BCT2 all gallery but they are coded into each squadron gallery as well.
Side note: A big thank you to the family from North Carolina that sent us some treats from there!
We’ll be back later this evening with additional coverage. Just a heads up we won't be able to get everyone again this afternoon.
