About

For eight decades, Sheppard Air Force Base has been one of the Air Force’s premier training bases, one of the few to host both technical and flying training missions. Today Sheppard produces more technical training graduates—67,000 per year—than any other Air Force tech training base. In fact, it still produces almost half of all technical training graduates. Sheppard also plays a critical international role in developing U.S. and allied airpower, producing highly trained combat pilots for the NATO Alliance, as well as foreign enlisted and officer personnel in a variety of disciplines, from every permanently inhabited continent on the globe.

Sheppard Air Force Base originally provided aircrew and aircraft mechanics training during World War II. Today, Sheppard is the largest and most diverse training base in Air Education and Training Command. It is the only Air Force base that is home to both technical and flying training. Sheppard trains pilots and maintainers, as well as the propulsion, avionics maintenance, flight equipment, fuels, munitions and aerospace ground equipment specialists, needed to keep planes in the air, and the civil engineers, plumbers, telecommunications specialists and electricians needed to keep bases running. Sheppard is also home to the Air Force’s largest technical training wing and the world’s only internationally manned and managed flying training program.
