Advanced Training Photo Page
This page is an ongoing archive of photos from AT-I, AT-IA, and AT-II. We've been running the AT program since 1996, and the material covered changes slightly every time as we continue to improve the course and add new target systems and training equipment. The photos here are a snapshot of the course, circa 1998. Now that we've moved the course to our new range we'll get some new pictures up here real soon.
