The 33rd Fighter Wing is home to the Air Force's first graduate flying and maintenance training program. The 33rd Operations and Maintenance Groups and the F-35 Lightning II Academic Training Center each play a vital role in taking this 5th generation aircraft to initial operating capability.

Members of the media should send an email detailing what the intended focus of their story to the public affairs office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An official letter of "intent to publish" from a bonafide media outlet must accompany requests from freelance reporters/photographers.
Requests from members of foreign/international press will be staffed forward to higher authorities for initial approval.
In an effort to reconnect with local communities, the United States Air Force has resumed a limited aerial events program in 2015.
Budgetary constraints require that the flyover program be scaled back from historical numbers. Unfortunately, that means that a very limited number of events will be eligible for support.
All requests for flyover support must be submitted via the USAF Aerial Events Support website. We encourage you to submit your requests and we will determine eligibility based on FY 15 guidance from the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
Civic/military groups may submit a
tour request form
to the public affairs office. Please keep the following in mind BEFORE submitting a request:
Groups should be at minimum 25 members including escorts but must not be larger than 40 members.
Request forms must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the desired tour date; groups including foreign nationals should plan to submit their request at least 45 days prior to requested visit date to allow sufficient time for security coordination.
33rd FW PA reserves the right to prioritize all tour requests to best meet organizational objectives.
