Davis-Monthan AFB economic impact analysis

Davis-Monthan AFB is home of the 355 FW and its nine major tenant units, to include 12th Air Force Headquarters (AFSOUTH). At any given time, Davis-Monthan AFB has anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000 Airmen deployed around the world engaged in combat operations.

Although these Airmen come from every state in the nation, they call Tucson home. All are volunteers and most joined after the attacks against our country on September 11, 2001. Davis-Monthan AFB is an integral part of the Tucson community. The valuable relationship with the Tucson community and Southern Arizona supporters help us achieve our mission objectives.

The Economic Impact Analysis (EIA) shows how Davis-Monthan AFB’s existence affects the local Tucson Metropolitan Area. In Fiscal Year 2013, Davis-Monthan AFB circulated approximately $973 million ($1.5 billion including retiree data) into the local community, employed 2,884 civilians, and created approximately 4,403 jobs in the Old Pueblo.
