One of the treasures of the California gold country, Beale is home of the 9th Reconnaissance Wing and is considered by many to be one of the show places of the United States Air Force. It’s a base steeped in history, yet at the same time it soars in the forefront of the Air Force’s future in high technology. As a new member of the Beale community, we welcome you and at the same time thank you. We thank you for bringing your skill and knowledge and for helping to make Beale just a bit more valuable.


Your sponsor is a personal representative of your gaining squadron commander who is assigned and trained to assist you and your family in all aspects of your relocation to Beale Air Force Base. He or she will be knowledgeable about Beale and the surrounding communities and available to aid you from assignment notification until you are settled in your home and work center here. Do not hesitate to ask questions of your sponsor, as they have the resources of the squadron and the relocation assistance professionals at Airman & Family Readiness to help them address your concerns and needs. Please visit for instructions for receiving your personal property and pictures to help you visualize your new home.

Remember, Beale is relatively isolated and unless you are arriving by car, you should coordinate transportation arrangements from the airport to the installation with your sponsor. If you need help in obtaining a sponsor, please contact your Airman & Family Readiness Center at 530-634-2863 or DSN 368-2863.
