    Luke AFB is a major training base of the US Air Force Air Education and Training Command (AETC), training pilots in the F-16 Fighting Falcon. This base was founded in 1940. On 31 March 2011 it was announced that the F-35 Lightning II would replace the F-16 as the primary training aircraft at Luke, although the date of deployment of the new aircraft to Luke and reorganization plans were not announced.

    Luke Air Force Base is the largest and only active-duty F-16 Fighting Falcon training base in the world with more than 200 F-16s assigned. The host command at Luke is the 56th Fighter Wing (56 FW), under Air Education and Training Command's 19th Air Force.

    Unfortunately, the Air Park Museum is not easily accessible to the general public. Groups can arrange tours through the base public affairs office, but individuals need to know someone on base who can vouch for them.
