I have been offered an appointment (which I am accepting) and now I am wondering about the commercial airline travel as provided by USAFA... It says in the "Travel to USAFA guidance" section on my portal to include the "Date of travel if earlier than Wednesday, June 26, 2013" on the form. I was thinking of going out to CO a week or two early and staying with a family friend to try to get used to the 7,258 ft. of altitude. Will the Academy still cover airfare if I am going out so early or should I select the "I will make my own travel arrangements option"? This is probably a very simple question but I just wanted to see if anyone had advice from previous years. Thanks!
