Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort

 

Welcome

 

Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort is home to Marine Aircraft Group 31, one of the largest F/A-18 aircraft groups, which includes approximately 4,200 Marines and Sailors working here. Its size, combined with MAG-31’s reputation for tactical proficiency, has earned the Air Station the title “Fightertown.”

 

The Air Station covers 6,900 acres within Beaufort County and controls an additional 5,200 acres at the Townsend Bombing Range in Macintosh County, Ga. This range is managed by the Georgia Air National Guard and provides Fightertown pilots the opportunity to train for air-ground combat.
