The 325th Fighter Wing (325 FW) is a wing of the United States Air Force based in Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida.
The 325th Fighter Wing’s primary mission is to provide air dominance training for F-22 Raptor pilots and maintenance personnel and air battle managers to support the combat Air Force.
Training for F-22 pilots is performed in the 43d Fighter Squadron. The 325th Air Control Squadron trains air battle managers for assignment to combat Air Force units. Additionally, wing personnel manage the southeastern air combat maneuvering instrumentation range and provide mission-ready F-22 air dominance forces in support of the Commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)/1st Air Force (1 AF) contingency plans. The 325th Fighter Wing is commanded by Colonel Gregory M. Moseley, who assumed command 26 June 2020.
Other specialties trained under the 325th Fighter Wing include F-22 intelligence officer training, F-22 crew chief training and officer and enlisted air traffic controller training.
The 325th Fighter Wing is host to more than 30 tenant organizations located at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. The wing comprises the 325th Operations Group, 325th Maintenance Group, 325th Mission Support Group and 325th Medical Group.
From 1983 to 2010, training for F-15 pilots was performed at Tyndall by the 1st, 2d, and 95th Fighter Squadrons. During this period, the 325th FW also hosted training for F-15 Maintenance personnel, and Intelligence Officers assigned to F-15 units. The 1st Fighter Squadron was inactivated in 2006. The 2d and 95th FS’s were also inactivated in May and September 2010, respectively. However, with the return to Air Combat Command, the 325th FW gained a combat-coded F-22 squadron. In doing so, the 95th Fighter Squadron was reactivated on 11 October 2013 as an operational F-22 Raptor unit. In August 2014, the 2d was reactivated as the 2d Fighter Training Squadron. Flying the Northrop T-38 Talon, the 2d provides adversary training support to F-22 squadrons.
