Active community engagement programs enable commanders to enhance morale, public trust, and support. Air Force professionals involved in the communities where they live become front-line ambassadors for the Air Force. Through active programs, the Air Force demonstrates it is a community partner and a responsible steward of resources.
For the safety of our personnel and visitors we are temporarily suspending tours. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Base tours tell a portion of the Air Force story to visitors and highlight the Air Force mission, traditions and heritage. They are tailored to coincide with the interests of different age groups. Requests are granted on a first come, first served basis.
Requesting a Base Tour:
Shaw Air Force Base is committed to being a good neighbor in the South Carolina midlands. Although we implemented noise abatement procedures, we understand our aircraft and operations can cause a disturbance.
To report an issue please fill out and return the Noise Concern Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not receive a response within 48 business hours please call Community Engagement at (803) 895-2007/2008.
Aerial support requests can include airshows, event flyovers and static displays. Static displays allow the public to experience an up-close and personal view of our equipment and weapons systems and increase their knowledge and understanding of the Air Force mission.
Requesting Aerial Support:
