Default Hangar Space near Tyndall/PCB

Hello Everyone,
Looks like I might be taking an assignment to Tyndall this fall/winter. Hopefully will last about 18 months, but my family will be staying in Arkansas. Iím looking for a place to park my RV-4 during the week so I can go home on the weekends. Any insight to to hangars in the area would be much appreciated!

T-38 ADAIR? IP gig for Fat Amy? SNACKO at the WEG? Basketball control officer?

Just goofin', my last ever TDY in the USAF was to Tyndall back about 05' timeframe. Long before the Hurricane wiped most to the base clear off the face of the Earth.

Hope you have a great assignment and good luck!

You are looking at an hour drive from Tyndall to any public airport in the area. KECP will be expensive, small hanger rent is $500/mo. Caters to airline and jet traffic so most transient GA is outside tiedowns. Your best bet might be checking with EAA Chapter 1646 at KAAF, they have a nice new large hanger. F95, KMAI, and 1J0 are all about 65-70 miles away. Sandy Creek Airpark is a private airpark right outside Tyndall Class D, EAA Chapter 202 has a hanger there.

Years ago, when Tyndall had a flying club, active duty folks on temporary assignment could arrange to park their aircraft at the base. Not sure if they still do that, but it may be another option.

1st AF? Ouch. Well make some friends and maybe you can sandbag some back seat time in the -38s.

Either way, good luck and enjoy your assignment.
