United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs Reviews

  • The views are Beautiful. Very informative. We did a tour and were able to meet a LTC from Texas. He gave our son, The Military Buff, a lot of good information about getting into the Academy. We were able to see cadets in different phases of their time here. From first year to Seniors. The Chapel was Gorgeous. I recommend everyone to experience this amazing place. Fly High!

  • The Women's Team at the Ethics Bowl where I served as a judge WON the entire competition. Really a super group of good thinkers with great ethical stress detection (moral sensitivity) and problem solving skills.

  • Was stationed at the USAF Academy. Visited the base last year. Still as beautiful as I remembered.

  • I am here to pay my respect to the outstanding men and women serving our great nation. The 20 min movie in the gift shop gave an excellent overview to the life of cadets, their choice and sacrifice, their being trained a warrior and leader the same time.

  • From everything I've heard, this is the most excellent and outstanding academy to the Air Force! :) Keep the great work up Air Force Personnel!! :)
