The 56th Fighter Wing is a fighter wing in the United States Air Force. It is the Air Force’s only active-duty F-16 training wing and one of two F-35 training wings. The 56th graduates more than 400 General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon pilots and 300 air control professionals annually. The wing is also responsible for three additional squadrons under the 54th Fighter Group located at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, where F-16 training is moving as the wing transitions to become the sole pilot training center for the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II.[2]

Additionally, the 56th Fighter Wing oversees the Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field and the Barry M. Goldwater Range, a military training range spanning more than 1.7 million acres of Sonoran Desert
