Units

Air Combat Command's 388th Fighter Wing is a tenant unit at Hill AFB. The wing is home to an operations and maintenance group responsible for the readiness of the Air Force's largest combat-capable fleet of F-16 Fighting Falcons. Six squadrons and approximately 1,500 Airmen make up the two groups. The wing also oversees Utah Test and Training Range operations.

In 2007, the active duty 388th FW began sharing resources with Hill's Reserve 419th FW under the Air Force's Total Force Integration initiative. Operations and maintenance personnel from both wings now work side-by-side on a daily basis to fix and fly the fleet of F-16s. The formal Record of Decision designating Hill AFB as the location for the first operational F-35A wing was signed in December 2013. Under the current plan, the 388th Fighter Wing will receive the first of 72 F-35A aircraft in September 2015 along with support personnel and upgraded facilities. The 72 F-35As, divided equally into three squadrons, will replace the same number of F-16s, one squadron of which deactivated early in 2010. Multiple facilities are undergoing renovation to accommodate the requirements associated with basing the F-35A at Hill AFB.
