GROUP TOURS
Base tours are offered to local civic organizations, schools and youth groups to educate its members about the Air Force and, more specifically, Keesler's missions. Tours average 2-3 hours. Tours are not available on weekends, holidays or non-training Fridays.

Please note the following when submitting a group tour request:

1. Age - To maximize resources, education and recruiting opportunities, school and youth group participants should be primarily juniors and seniors in high school.

2. Size - Tours are limited to a minimum of 25 and a maximum of 40 participants (or the passenger capacity of one commercial bus)

3. Transportation - Organizations are responsible for their own transportation. Tours are limited to one busload. Unfortunately, requests to use multiple vehicles cannot be accommodated.

4. Dates. Allow 3-4 weeks advance notice for tours. All requests are given equal consideration and are granted on a first-requested, first-served basis. State a suggested primary and alternate date in the request. All dates are subject to change or cancellation based on mission requirements and manning availability. Final confirmations will be provided two weeks prior to the tour date.

If your group meets this criteria, send request to 81trw.pa@us.af.mil or fax to 228-377-3940.
