BCT-1: Intro to Drill

For the purpose of drill, Air Force organizations are divided into elements, flights, squadrons, groups, and wings.

Drill consists of certain movements by which the flight or squadron is moved in an orderly manner from one formation to another or from one place to another. Standards such as the 24-inch step, cadence of 100 to 120 steps per minute, distance, and interval have been established to ensure movements are executed with order and precision.


The task of each person is to learn these movements and execute each part exactly as described. Individuals also must learn to adapt their own movements to those of the group. Everyone in the formation must move together on command.

The WebTeam has been out all morning working hard to capture this first drill lesson.  With the squardons broken out into flights for the training, it made it a little harder to ensure we captured all fights/personnel. We do have additional sessions of drill scheduled to photograph to ensure we catch all flights and individuals for you to see.  To make searching a little easier for today's photos, you can scroll down to the squadron of your choice and start there.

Drill photos can be found under, Classes >2024 > BCT-1, then select the squadron or click the link below.
