Vital Air Force resources need protecting. This includes bases, aircraft, and fellow Airmen. For this reason, the Air Force trains snipers for security purposes to find and remove any enemy snipers when necessary. While the specialized Air Force Sniper Training will provide all the necessary tools and skills if accepted, there are a few things prospective snipers can do beforehand to ensure their acceptance. 1.Train as though enrolling in the army. The Air Force has their own fitness standards, but sniper training is more similar to rigorous training associated with the army. One goal that must be reached is being able to complete a 2 mile run in less than 17 minutes and 36 seconds. 2.Work toward a lower heart rate. This will come naturally when exercising vigorously as previously mentioned, but the best Air Force snipers will have calm heart rates to keep a steady hand in a situation when the first shot needs to hit the target. To begin, cut caffeine from the diet, practice deep breathing exercises, and take up yoga. 3.Experiment at a local shooting range. By practicing rifle skills, the basic fundamentals and the various shooting positions can be learned. It is good to have a foundation of knowledge regarding the gun before the Air Force sniper training requires the student to lie in a less-than-comfortable position for lengthy periods and shooting accurately. 4.Adjust to the weather. Air Force snipers do not have the leisure of only working on clear, sunny days. They are needed in dry, cold mountains, desert heat, and everything in between. 5.Create mental maps of the environment. The most important factor of being a successful Air Force sniper is the ability to spot the enemy before he spots the sniper. He must be aware of any hiding spot available to both himself and the enemy, and do so extremely quickly. While the student will not be in danger until he has passed, the requirements are extremely strict. Becoming an Air Force sniper requires advanced training within the school, so it is a good idea to have a few fundamentals mastered before being thrown into such a high stress position.
