Information on Base Tours

Base Tour requests for both the Charlotte and New London locations are handled by the Public Affairs office. To request a base tour please complete and submit the following forms.

  1. Base Tour Request
  2. Vetting Form

Some information regarding the tours:

  • Base Tours are scheduled with a minimum 45 days notice
  • The base recruiting office will conduct tours involving ROTC students (PA will still process the request)
  • With some exceptions we ask that all tour attendees be over the age of 14
  • Anyone over the age of 18 will need to be placed on the vetting form, this requires full names, drivers license/ ID number, and social security number so that our security forces can run a full background check.
  • Typical tours involve a C-130 walk through with a pilot and/or crew chief which traditionally takes up most of the scheduled time. If more time is available we visit the maintenance hanger and our memorial site.

SPECIAL NOTICE: The base is currently transitioning form C-130 Hercules aircraft to the C-17 Globemaster. Due to construction and possible lack of aircraft base tours may have limited availability for the foreseeable future. We apologize for any inconvenience that may arise, however we are excited and looking forward to showing off our new aircraft once they are in place.

Please be advised that making the request is not a guarantee that the unit can or will provide a speaker. We cannot fulfill requests that could be seen as military endorsements of non government associations.
