Jump M-Day Spring 2023 Group 1
Special Note: These photos may not contain all cadets from group 1 as there were delays and cancellations due to weather. The weather has been extremely cold and snowy in Colorado. WebGuy does our best to capture as many cadets as humanly possible.
According to the USAFA website, The AM-490 course is the only certified jump program in the world where students make their first freefall jump without assistance. Each year, over 700 cadets take the AM-490 course, “Stand In The Door”, and earn their jump wings.
This training has taken place at the Academy since 1962. Nearly 800 Academy and ROTC cadets earn basic parachutist wings annually on completion of five solo freefall jumps as part of the course.
