The Air Force Academy retired its TG-10C Kestrel glider fleet after certifying a final new cadet instructor pilot on a check ride on July 23, 2012. The school acquired 12 TG-10s in 2002 for use in cadets' basic and aerobatic training. Replacing the TG-10s are the academy's new TG-16A gliders, which cadets began using on July 16, 2012. Here, a TG-16 arrives at the academy in July 2011.
