For Your Information

Fairchild AFB has been an important part of the Inland Empire since 1942. The base took its current name in November 1950, in memory of the late Air Force Vice Chief of Staff General Muir S. Fairchild, a native of Bellingham, Wash. It began with the Spokane Army Air Depot on March 2, 1942. The War Department felt that Spokane offered better weather conditions and a mountain range that provided a natural barrier to possible Japanese attack. From 1943 until 1946, the base served as a repair depot for damaged aircraft returning from the Pacific Theater. In 1947, the base was transferred to the Strategic Air Command and assigned to 15th Air Force. The same year, the 92nd and 98th Bomb Groups arrived. Just a year later, the base received the second of its three official names: Spokane Air Force Base. In June 1992 the wing became part of the newly formed Air Combat Command and became the 92nd Bomb Wing. On July 1, 1994, the 92nd Bomb Wing was designated the 92nd Air Refueling Wing, and Fairchild AFB was transferred from Air Combat Command (ACC) to Air Mobility Command (AMC).

The wing is capable of maintaining an air bridge across the nation and the world in support of US and allied forces. All branches of the military are represented, with the largest being Fairchild Air Force Base with more than 4,500 military and 1,500 civilian employees. Annually, the military contributes over $411 million to the Spokane economy.

Fairchild Tenant Units: On March 1, 1966, the 336th Combat Crew Training Group was activated at Fairchild. In 1971, it became a wing and assumed control over all Air Force survival schools Survival School, The 336th Training Group. Their mission, "To safely prepare America's aircrews for global survivability anytime, anywhere, and return with honor."Other base tenants include DET 13, 373 TRS (AETC FTD), 2nd Support Squadron (ACC), 141st Air Refueling Wing (Washington Ang), and Air Force Office of Special Investigations, DET 322.

ARRIVING BY CAR

The most common way to approach Fairchild by car is on Interstate 90. Take exit 277, which leads to Highway 2. A sign at the exit also advises motorists to take Highway 2 to reach Fairchild. Travel on Highway 2 through the town of Airway Heights. The main gate to Fairchild will be to your left at the first traffic signal west of Airway Heights.

HERITAGE PARK & MUSEUM

Fairchild's base museum is currently closed. They will be building a new building to house the museum. The purpose of the museum is to recapture and illustrate the history, heritage, and traditions of Fairchild Air Force Base. The heritage of the base is historically entwined with that of Spokane's other military installations. Thus, the museum displays artifacts and memorabilia from various local military establishments, past and present.

GEOGRAPHY AND CLIMATE

British Columbia borders Washington State on the north, on the south by Oregon, on the east by Idaho and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The topography of this land varies from golden wheat fields to snow-capped mountains, from massive forests to deserts, and from pristine lakes to raging rivers. The Cascade Mountains divides the state north to south, which are topped by four snow-capped dormant volcanoes. The state is a vast and varied region of rugged, sometimes awesome beauty, where great stretches of barren flatlands give way suddenly to awesome rock formations and sparkling waterfalls. The varied climate and terrain make it possible for residents to enjoy a wide variety of activities throughout the year. There are 76 lakes and four major rivers within a 50-mile radius of the city, offering all kinds of recreational activities.Dozens of these lakes are unknown except by residents and offer excellent fishing and swimming. The big lakes of Idaho are located just a short distance away.

Spokane is a city with four distinct seasons. About 70 percent of total precipitation falls between the first of October and the end of March and about half of that falls as snow. The growing season usually is from mid-April to mid-October. Summer weather is ideal for full enjoyment of the many mountain and lake recreational areas in the immediate vicinity. Winter weather includes many cloudy or foggy days and below freezing temperatures with occasional snowfall of several inches. Snowfall averages about 46 inches a year.

SPOKANE HISTORY, ECONOMY, FACTS & FIGURES

Major attractions include a museum of Spokane's early days, a museum of Indian history and artifacts, a tribute to former resident Bing Crosby and, typical of all Washington cities, plenty of nearby recreational activities. Spokane is still enjoying many facilities used during the 1974 World Exposition. The EXPO site, Riverfront Park, is in the tradition of Spokane's superior public park system. Located in the city's center, the park features museums, an opera house and a convention center. Lewis and Clark explored this region in 1805. There are six major hospitals offering open-heart surgery, cancer treatment, neo-natal care, kidney dialysis and heart/lung transplants. Major industries include: construction and mining; manufacturing; transportation, communication and utilities; finance, insurance, and real estate; health care delivery; and government. Nearby forests account for one-quarter of the world's white pine trees. There are nearly 31 million acres of commercial forests in the Spokane marketplace.
