A beautiful chapel and Aircraft exhibits - Colorado Springs, CO, USA

Air Force Academy is one of the offbeat locations to visit in Colorado Springs. We can spend 2 to 3 hours at airforce academy.

This is an institution for undergraduate students to get a Bachelor of science degree to be commissioned as second lieutenants in United States air force after the successful completion. This also attracts more than a million tourists every year. There is no entry fee to view exhibits and the Chapel.

The 150 ft Cadet chapel is a major attraction here for its beautiful architecture. This chapel is an all faiths house of worship and there are separate chapels for 4 major religions like Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, and Buddhism. The chapel structure took $3.5 million to build and it is recognized as CNN's most epic churches in America.

The exhibit area contains videos and displays about the Academy's history, a hometown map, significant features of Academy, a theater and a gift shop. The theater shows a 15 min video of Academy's history, campus and about a day in Cadet's life here. It explains the four pillars of Cadet training program: Character development, Academic, athletic and military training. This facility is opened in June 1986.


After visiting the exhibits and Chapel, we enjoyed walking through a place with the statues of Aircrafts and Falcon (representing Airforce academy).

One more benefit of being in the same city as Air force academy is to see an annual air show conducted here from our house itself. Here is a snap from Airshow.



Hope you liked this virtual tour.

Mahathi, watching an air show through your window is so cool! I remember when we lived in Goa, right next to the airport and saw the take offs and landings all day long.The air force academy looks great with its statue planes and the chapel is amazing.
