At Hill Air Force Base

Established in 1940, Hill Air Force Base (AFB) is headquartered 25 miles north of Salt Lake City along the Wasatch Range. The base is home to the 75th Air Base Wing and the Ogden Air Logistics Complex, one of three Air Force sustainment complexes nationwide.

Serving as a critical logistics, support, maintenance and testing center for the Air Force’s most advanced aircraft and weapons systems, the base provides Air Force-wide, depot-level overhaul and repair support, which is essential to ensuring the proper execution of Air Force operations. The base is also home to two operational F-35A fighter wings.

Hill AFB owns and operates the Utah Test and Training Range, located 100 miles west of the base. This 2.3 million-acre training range and airspace is used by Hill AFB, as well as other mission partners and range customers. It is an ideal location for the testing and evaluation of weapons systems requiring large safety footprints. Multiple services, including other Air Force active-duty and reserve combat units, U.S. Army, U.S. Army National Guard, Navy Special Forces and allied units use the range.

The total economic impact of the base and the Utah Test and Training Range in the state is estimated at over $3 billion annually. The base is the largest single-site employer in Utah, with more than 22,000 military and civilian employees.

75TH AIR BASE WING

The 75th Air Base Wing serves as Hill AFB’s host organization and provides readiness and installation support for personnel in the Ogden Air Logistics Complex, the 388th and 419th Fighter Wings, and more than 50 other mission partners. The wing is responsible for mission support, civil engineering, medical services, airfield operations, safety, finance,

command post, explosive ordnance disposal and ground operations for the installation and the Utah Test and Training Range. Additionally, the 75th is the Air Force’s single provider of Standard Air Munitions Packages, or STAMP, to support wartime taskings across the globe. Nearly half of the base’s real estate is dedicated to the safe storage, depot-level maintenance, and rapid processing of lethal munitions, ensuring warfighters have the combat power they require to fight and win our nation’s wars.
