Welcome Newcomers


Congratulations on your assignment to Tyndall Air Force Base! This page will provide you with all the resources and information you need in order for you to have a smooth and successful move.

The installation is located in Bay County on the Gulf of Mexico in the Florida Panhandle, 12 miles east of Panama City. The Panama City area, best known for its sugar-white sand and emerald green waters, is a popular tourist destination.

The host unit, the 325th Fighter Wing, develops resourceful and resilient Airmen trained to project unrivaled combat air power on behalf of the United States of America. The wing trains and prepares F-22 Raptor pilots, intelligence officers, and maintainers for assignment to combat Air Force units.

In 2018, the base sustained a direct hit from Hurricane Michael. Construction is now underway to rebuild the base and shape it into the Air Force’s first 21st Century “Installation of the Future.” Great things are happening here as Tyndall plans to welcome F-35 Lightning II aircraft beginning September 2023.

It's an exciting time to be a Checkertail!
