To request a tour, please read the full process description below, then fill in and submit the request form.

Tour Request Process

Here is the process for requesting a tour at Youngstown Air Reserve Station. Please read these instructions before submitting a request.

Step 1
No later than four weeks prior to requested tour date, fill out and submit the tour request form on this page. Available dates are listed in the drop down menu under "Requested Tour Date."

Step 2
30 minutes after submission, call the 910th Airlift Wing Public Affairs office at 330-609-1364 to confirm tour request receipt and approval. A Public Affairs representative will then email you additional instructions including an entry access request form.

Step 3
No later than two weeks prior to requested tour date, fill out the entry access request form and return it to the 910th AW/PA office. If the Public Affairs office does not receive this form prior to two weeks before your tour date, we will not be able to complete security requirements and will not be able to grant you access to the base for the tour. 

Step 4
Once sent, call 910AW/PA to confirm receipt of Entry Access Request Form. We are not responsible for forms that do not get to us, so it it is critical that you call us to confirm that we've have received the form no later than two weeks prior to your tour date. 

NOTE: All of our tour guests who are 18 and older must pass a background check to ensure they are able to enter a federal military installation.

If the individual is unable to produce an official photo or identification card they will be denied access to the installation and not issued an access pass/badge.

Tour Rules

Only people whose information is submitted to us on the entry access request form and who have been properly vetted by our Security Force personnel will be given access to the installation on your tour date. Anyone whose name is not submitted to us in advance, or who has disqualifying information resulting from security background checks, will be denied entry.
