Tyndall Air Force Base has completed the Tyndall AFB Programmatic Environmental Analysis.

Officials say this is one of two major National Environmental Policy Act actions required to allow reconstruction to begin. with this approval, officials say they can now proceed with the remaining demolition and rebuild.

“This is great news for Tyndall AFB because we can now move forward with the multi-billion dollar rebuild,” said Col. Travis Leighton, Tyndall PMO director. “This includes completing the demolition required to clear sites on time for the construction of new facilities.”

“The completion of the EA allows the base to continue building the Base of the Future,” said Col. Brian Laidlaw, 325th Fighter Wing commander. “Our local community and Team Tyndall supporters will welcome this good news. We will continue moving ahead so we will be ready to welcome the first F-35s beginning in September 2023. This timeline ensures Tyndall will train and project unrivaled combat airpower from the panhandle for years to come.”
