May 2017 Monthly Program Details

The Southern Arizona Post of SAME invites you to join us for our May 18, 2017 meeting at the Tucson Air National Guard Base located at 6615 South Air Guard Way (Building 5 Conference Room).  Sign-in, lunch (Sub Sandwiches, salad, chips, and drinks), and announcements will begin at 11:30.  Lt. Col. Greg Hoffman, Commander of the 162nd Civil Engineer Squadron, will give a brief 30 minute talk about the mission of the 162nd Wing, the differences between Active Duty and Air Guard Civil Engineer organization and current and future development plans for the Tucson Air National Guard Base.

Following the talk, everyone will depart for a brief walking tour of the base, to include an F-16 tour (inside of the maintenance hangar) and  a tour of the flight simulator bays.

The 162nd Wing is home to the Air National Guard's premier F-16 Fighter Pilot training unit.  It is the largest ANG fighter wing in the country, squeezing over 70 jets and 41 buildings on less than 100 acres of land adjacent to Tucson International Airport.  The wing shares use of the runway, security and fire crash rescue with the airport.  The 162nd Wing also has the 214th Reconnaissance Group and Total Force Training Center at Davis-Monthan AFB as well as UAV launch and recovery facilities at Ft. Huachuca.
