Prop & Wings Officer (PWO)

  • Our Prop & Wings Officers (PWOs) augment the official Academy Liaison Officers (ALOs) in helping identify high school students who are interested in becoming “Candidates” for the Nomination and Appointment process to become Cadets.
  • PWOs support ALOs in meeting with middle school and high school counselors, teachers and coaches to familiarize them with The Air Force Academy and the Application / Nomination / Appointment process. They also attend high school “College Nights” to represent USAFA and answer questions from Students and their Parents about the Academy.  There is a very nominal “training” process to become a PWO, and your commitment of time for the program is entirely up to you.
