The Wings of Blue operates in one of the busiest airspaces in the world but their drop zone is one of the safest. The Wings of Blue spend most of their time teaching freefall skydives to students while serving as jumpmasters and instructors. That does not take up their full schedule though as the Wings of Blue have both a competition and demonstration team. The competition team represents the Air Force by competing with teams from around the country. The demonstration team travels across the country to showcase the Air Force in precision parachuting at air shows and sporting events. The Wings of Blue have been operating for 54 years after starting in the spring of 1962.
