About

The United States Air Force Academy (also known as USAFA , the Air Force Academy, or the Academy), is a military academy for officer cadets of the United States Air Force. Its campus is located in the western United States in Colorado , immediately north of Colorado Springs in El Paso County.

The Academy’s stated mission is “to educate, train, and inspire men and women to become leaders of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation.” It is the youngest of the five U.S.service academies, having graduated its first class 59 years ago in 1959, however it is the third in seniority. Graduates of the Academy’s four-year program receive a Bachelor of Science degree, and are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force.  The Academy is also one of the largest tourist attractions in Colorado, attracting approximately a million visitors each year.
