PDS MCAS Yuma: Welcome
Welcome to Marine Corps Air Station Yuma. The mission of MCAS Yuma is to provide aviation ranges, support facilities and services that enable our tenants, other Marine Corps commands, visiting military and interagency forces to enhance their mission capabilities and combat readiness.
You will soon become an integral part of the Marine Corps' premier aviation training base, serving along with approximately 4,000 fellow active-duty Marines and Sailors. With access to more than one million acres of bombing and aviation-training ranges and superb flying weather, MCAS Yuma supports 80 percent of the Corps' air-to-ground aviation training. The air station hosts approximately 70 aviation units, bringing an average of 600 aircraft and 14,000 personnel for ongoing training that takes place throughout the year.
The ideal weather and location along the Colorado River make Yuma and the surrounding area an oasis in the southwestern Sonoran Desert. The area offers a variety of recreational opportunities and water sports, as well as seasonal hunting and fishing. Whether you're assigned to the air station or one of the tenant commands, your stay here is sure to be an enjoyable one.
Covering five square miles of southeastern Yuma, the air station is home to a number of tenant units, including Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron 1 (MAWTS-1), Marine Operational Test and Evaluation Squadron 1 (VMX-1), Marine Aircraft Group 13 (MAG-13), Marine Air Control Squadron 1 (MACS-1), Marine Fighter Training Squadron 401 (VMFT-401), and Combat Logistics Company 16 (CLC-16).
