Stand down, stand up: 1 FW starts Ready Airmen Program
JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —
The 1st Fighter Wing at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, leads the way in combat capability and lethality in current operations worldwide, and serves as America's premier air dominance wing, led by next generation Airmen, integrated with its mission partners, and ready to fly, fight, and win...anytime, anyplace.
In order to operate at this capacity, the Ready Aircrew Program establishes the minimum number of live training events and simulator missions that aircrews must complete during the annual training cycle to maintain readiness. But that does not prepare against all enemies.
