Jump Ground Training
Most of the cadets in these sessions were C1C’s with some C2C's getting their final chance to JUMP.
Airmanship 490 or AM-490 is a Basic Freefall Parachuting Program that the Academy offers and it is the core mission of the Wings of Blue and the 98th Training Squadron, all of the Cadets on the Wings of Blue team are certified AM-490 Instructors and Jumpmasters. Throughout each year over 700 Cadets complete this course where they achieve 5 parachute jumps and earn their jump wings.
AM-490 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.
We will be out next week if the weather holds, to capture these cadets as they do their jumps. To view this sessions Ground Training go to, Galleries > Airmanship > Jump or click the link below.
