** We are currently not accepting tour requests until Fall 2020 **

Hundreds of people visit the 433rd Airlift Wing each year because of the missions that may be found at JBSA-Lackland. Touring JBSA-Lackland and the Alamo Wing can be an excellent educational tool for groups interested in learning more about the Air Force and the Air Force Reserve. We welcome you to take a glimpse of life behind the gates.


The 433rd Airlift Wing, Public Affairs office, is responsible for all tours requested within the 433rd Airlift Wing and has the sole authority to make determinations concerning tours.

Tours are scheduled Monday – Friday, except for Tuesdays during regular business hours (9 a.m. - 3 p.m.). Tours are not offered on the weekends or holidays.

◾ Tour requests must be submitted at least 30 days in advance, but no earlier than 90 days.

◾ Requests for tours should be submitted 30 days from the requested date, and only one tour per calendar week will be approved.

◾ Groups must have at least ten attendees and are limited to no more than 44.

◾ Please notify us if any tour guests are not U.S. citizens or foreign nationals.

◾ Groups greater than ten individuals are responsible for coordinating transportation and must arrive by bus (individual vehicles or caravanning is not allowed.)

◾ A maximum of one bus per tour group.

◾ Please make Public Affairs aware of any tour guests who are officers in the grade of O-6 or above as well as any distinguished persons, award winners, POWs, etc., who will be accompanying your tour.

◾ Due to the extreme heat present in Southern Texas during the summer, tour requests are not accepted from June 1 - Aug. 31 as to not cause discomfort for visitors. 

◾ All tours are subject to change or cancelation based on operational requirements.

Cadet Support 

◾ Due to the extensive coordination and support required, we only schedule two Air Force ROTC tours per quarter (no more than one per month).
