Can they listen to music while flying on so far away cross-continental missions?
I heard that happens
g041.... calm down. And quit surfing the internet.
Go work on your application materials.

For general questions like this, you might be better off asking (if you really feel you need an answer) in the "Off Topic" forum. This forum is specifically for questions regarding the Air Force Academy.
+1. And if you post in Off Topic, Scout Pilot pilot is much more likely to offer his advice and insight. This does make me wonder, if he listens to music on his sorties. Hmmm.
We used to listen to music on HF/SSB radio...Radio Moscow was great with classical music...
Oh wait...that was during the "Cold War"...
I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of "patch cords", which would allow us to plug a walkman (look it up on Google. Played something called "cassettes". Later it could be used for "diskmans") into our helmet's comm cord. And like Flieger, we could also listen to HF radio broadcasts in the Vark. Something we also did to pass the time during those 10-hour pond crossings was play Trivial Pursuit between the 8 ship. Had to find a LOT of invent ways to kill time when strapped in that long to a seat.
I've heard tell of crew chiefs patching audio jacks to ICS cords for long boring flights so everyone can listen to music. Not common and only in certain situations but it's a real thing.
But the Vark "had" to have a more comfortable seat than the Eagle...
And with ALL that room...cassette recorder...probably had a Gameboy or two onboard too!
