As Conscript in Air Force Academy

The primary mission of the Air Force Academy's Military Training Squadron is to train conscripts for the duties of officers, non-commissioned officers, and rank and file.

The squadron's aim is to train warfighting airmen who can carry out their missions even under most strenuous conditions. While training is primarily geared to serve air base functions, a number of conscripts are trained for jobs in the control and reporting centres.

The squadron comprises a headquarters and a Communication Systems Training Flight, Aircraft and Weapon Systems Training Flight, Reserve Non-Commissioned Officer Training School, and a Reserve Officer Training School.

The squadron's overarching objective is to guarantee conscripts quality training in an emotionally and physically safe learning environment.
