Air Force Selects Kirtland AFB for AC-130J Formal Training Unit

This Realignment Includes Seven Aircraft And 372 Positions

The Air Force selected Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico as the preferred location for the relocation of the AC-130J Ghostrider Formal Training Unit from Hurlburt Field, Florida.

This action allows for Air Force Special Operations Command to realign its training mission under Air Education and Training Command and consolidate AC-130 initial and mission qualification training at Kirtland AFB.

This realignment includes seven aircraft and 372 positions.

The Air Force will complete a required environmental impact analysis before a final decision is made, the start of relocating the Formal Training Unit is expected to begin in the summer of 2022.

The AC-130J is a highly modified C-130J capable of extremely accurate navigation due to the fully integrated navigation systems with dual inertial navigation systems and global positioning system. Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., has been selected for the relocation of the AC-130J Ghostrider Formal Training Unit from Hurlburt Field, Fla. scheduled to begin the summer of 2022.
