Fighter Country Foundation is leading community support and advocacy organization for Luke Air Force Base.
The need to support Luke AFB
As a 2+ Billion dollar economic engine for the State of Arizona, Luke deserves our attention. When you have the world’s largest Air Force Base in your backyard, you’ve got to protect it. Fighter Country Foundation has done just that locally and in our Nation’s capital for more than 20 years.
Six Critical Reasons to Support
Luke Arizona needs to keep the mission of Luke Air Force Base today, and long into the future. To do that, here are a few things we must be aware of. Luke Air Force Base has six Critical Mission Elements. Unlike any other Base in the world, Luke has the ability to:
- Land and take off in two directions
- Access the Barry M. Goldwater Range with live training munitions
- Fly instrument approaches at the Luke Auxiliary Field #1
- Perform patterns and landings at Gila Bend Auxiliary Air Field
- Access and utilize Gladden/Bagdad Military Operating Areas
- Access Military Training Routes throughout the state
Fighter Country Will:
- Be the primary non-governmental liaison between Luke Air Force Base and the Valley of the Sun.
- Provide an enhanced quality of life for Luke’s families.
- Tell the story of Luke AFB and its local, national, and international impact.
- Honor and serve the men and women who protect us and our country.
