U. S. AIR FORCE ADADEMY PRECISION FLYING TEAM
The Flying Team represents the Air Force Academy at regional and national powered flying competitions. The team trains for ground events like flight computer (whiz-wheel) accuracy, simulated comprehensive aircraft navigation (flight planning), and aircraft identification.
Flying Team cadets fly the T-41D (Cessna 172) and T-51A (Cessna 150). Juniors primarily work on building flying proficiency and getting certified to do the competition events (precision landing, navigation, and message drop), while sophomores and freshmen work on perfecting their flying.
The Flying Team is an opportunity to improve your flying skills, meet pilots from other schools, and represent USAFA at the national level. Usually nine cadets are selected from each class.
