Wings of Blue

98FTS/AM-490

 

The primary mission of the Wings of Blue is to run the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Basic Freefall Parachuting course, known as Airmanship 490 (AM-490). The team serves primarily as jumpmasters and instructors, forging leaders of character through this unique training experience. 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.
