314th AMXS: Keeping Pilots safe

The maintainers of the 314th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron take pride in the fact that “if it’s in the air, maintenance put it there.” The Airmen of the 314th AMXS work around the clock to ensure more than 20 aircraft are fit to fly. These maintainers certify all C-130 aircraft are safe, functioning properly and ready to meet training and operational requirements. By providing mission-ready aircraft, pilots in training receive essential flying hours that are necessary for graduation from the Center of Excellence.

Critical Days of Summer wrap-up

CE touts well done
BEEF Project
Airmen from the 19th Civil Engineer Squadron completed a more than two-month training exercise to ensure they are mission-ready at any given moment. Because of varying specialties within the civil engineering career field, the Base Engineer Emergency Force exercise, nicknamed Prime BEEF, allowed an array of CE professionals to partner together in order to accomplish the mission.
