Historically known as “Home of the Fighter Pilot,” Nellis is a proud member of the U.S. Air Force’s Air Combat Command. It is home to the U.S. Air Force Warfare Center, the largest and most demanding advanced combat training mission in the world. Nellis provides training for composite strike forces, which include every type of aircraft in the Air Force inventory. Training is conducted in conjunction with air and ground units of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and air forces from our allied nations. The base’s all-encompassing mission is accomplished through an array of aircraft, including the A-10, F-15C/D, F-15E, F-22A, F-16C/D, HH-60 and most recently, the F-35A Lightning II.
