Community concerns

Little Rock AFB values the long-standing support and appreciation shown by our local community neighbors and partners.  Your support allows us to continuously train, prepare and operate in support of our nation’s defense.  At times there may be occasional disruptions to daily schedules due to additional flight operation requirements and aircraft noise. 

The Air Force's primary job is national security.  Little Rock AFB is The Home of Herk Nation and our primary mission is to provide the Department of Defense mission-ready Airmen and support the largest C-130 fleet in the world.  Our collective responsibilities range from supplying humanitarian airlift relief to victims of disasters, to airdropping supplies and troops into the heart of contingency operations in hostile areas as well as supporting base partners as the host unit.  We also train C-130 aircrew members from the DoD, U.S. Coast Guard, and 47 allied nations, training more than 1,200 students per year—the DoD's largest international flight training program.  Sometimes this training results in low-flying aircraft and noise.  Due to the size of the C-130 aircraft, they can appear lower than they actually are.

Little Rock AFB strives to be a good neighbor by maintaining strong community relations with our surrounding communities.  We diligently seek to provide timely, responsive, and factual answers to all public inquiries as they pertain to Little Rock AFB. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding while our Airmen strive to train and support our Department of Defense mission—know that your safety and our safety are paramount to mission success.
