The United States Air Force Academy, Colorado is located north of Colorado Springs. The Academy is on approximately 18,500 acres.

When Congress passed the bill to establish the Air Force Academy, the search for land began. Finally, the Colorado Springs area was determined to be the right place to build, and in 1955 construction began. The first Air Force Academy class was sworn in at Lowry Air Force Base.
