The Air Force Reserve's Alamo Wing officially became the C-5 Galaxy go-to unit. If it has to do with simulators, flight qualification or classes to become a C-5 pilot, engineer or loadmaster, Lackland's Kelly Field is now the only place to go.
Air crew members from Active-duty, Reserve and Air National Guard units now get all their C-5 training at the 433rd Airlift Wing.
A ribbon cutting ceremony commemorating the opening of the C-5 Formal Training Unit Complex is scheduled for November 30th at 10:00 a.m. Tours of the new facility will be offered to media members prior to the ceremony.
Representatives from Air Mobility Command Headquarters and Air Force Reserve Command Headquarters will attend the ceremony.

Media Advisory: RSVPs are required. Media who wish a tour must arrive at the Growden Gate no later than 8:45 a.m. The tour includes the C-5 simulator, Flight Training Unit and the Ground Training Unit. To cover the event or to get more information, contact Master Sgt. Collen McGee at the 433rd Airlift Wing Public Affairs office at (210) 925-5194.
