AIRS 2201 - The Evolution of USAF Air and Space Power I

Fall. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: full-time students.


This course is designed to examine general aspects of air and space power through a historical perspective. The course covers a time period from the first balloons and dirigibles to the role of airpower in the Korean conflict. Historical examples are provided to illustrate the development of Air Force capabilities and functions to demonstrate the evolution of what has become today’s USAF air and space power. The course examines several fundamental truths associated with war in the third dimension, and provides students with an understanding of the general element and employment of air and space power from an institutional, doctrinal, and historical perspective. In addition, students continue to discuss the importance of the Air Force core values. For officer candidates, a mandatory leadership laboratory complements this course.
