The 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs office manages the base's community relations program. The objective of community relations is to increase public awareness and understanding of the Air Force and Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. The base maintains an active program that includes a Speaker's Bureau, Honorary Commander program, organized base tours, Honor Guards, National Anthem singers, Pilot for a Day, flyovers, and base participation in large community events such as sporting events and parades.
D-M will not be hosting any base tours between March 12-23, 2018 due to the 2018 Open House
Our goal is to foster positive relations with the surrounding communities. Participation in community events by Air Force personnel is desirable and highly encouraged; however, limitations of time, money and mission requirements may make it impossible to grant all requests. The Community Relations office can be reached at (520) 228-3378.
The 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) is a one-of-a-kind specialized facility within U.S. Air Force Materiel Command’s Ogden Air Logistics Complex at Hill Air Force Base. Recognized as “the Air Force’s Boneyard,” AMARG encompasses more than 2,600 acres of DMAFB and provides secure storage for nearly 4,000 aircraft. The facility has transcended its traditional role of storage and is now a proven source of repair, refurbishment and modification for weapon systems worldwide.
Six mission elements make up AMARG’s support for joint, allied and coalition warfighters: aircraft storage and preservation, aircraft parts reclamation, aircraft regeneration, aircraft disposal, Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness management, and limited depot-level maintenance.
The Pima Air & Space Museum, a private not-for-profit museum, is the current tour provider for AMARG. Bus tours are offered on a first come, first served basis, Monday through Friday only. The number of tours are seasonal and can fluctuate so individuals are encouraged to contact the museum for specific tour times.
For anyone 18 years or older, personally identifiable information (Social Security Number and date of birth) and government-issued identification (driver’s license/passport) are required when signing up for an AMARG tour. Passengers are subject to a random background check and will have to adhere to bus check procedures when arriving at Davis-Monthan AFB (DMAFB) in Tucson, Ariz.
AMARG public tour passengers may expect some delays in the passenger screening process and will need to be prepared to get on and off the bus during screening.
Tours can last up to 3 hours so visitors are asked to plan accordingly.
Photos are not permitted while transiting DMAFB but can be taken from the bus upon entering AMARG’s facility. Visitors are not able to get off the bus during the tour.
