    DS scheduled for Session "A" 2011 SS. Travelling from Wash DC area. Looking at rates and most available flight options, DEN is way to go, BUT USAFA states clearly on SS instructions there will be no transportation provided to DEN by USAFA.

    Those of you out in the COS area, can you give me some input on what is best way to get from USAFA over to DEN airport? Busses? An airport shuttle link? Not complicated? Schedule? Cost?

    Thanks!

    I took the liberty of looking at flights out of your area. I don't know what prices you found were, but using Kayak search engine the price difference between flying into COS or DEN was only $41. (Prices at $400 and $359 round trip) For that I would think it would be easier and much more convenient to just have him fly in Colorado Springs. :thumb:

    peace of mind is worth the extra $41.00. there will probably be other summer seminar kids on your childs flight and the colorodo springs airport is not overwhelming. the cadets who meet the summer seminar attendees are very obvious at the airport in colorodo springs. transportation to and from is provided so no worrying about waiting/missing a shuttle.

    You are absolutely right. Between the coordination of schedule, the
    1 1/2 hour travel time to DEN and $ spent for shuttle service, it makes complete sense to just take off from COS. thanks for setting me straight!
