At our Pearl Harbor Hickam base, our primary mission is the Fighter mission, which involves air-to-air and air-to-ground operations designed to support ground forces and to gain control of enemy airspace. Additional missions include Air Mobility, In-Flight Refueling, Intelligence, Weather, and Homeland Defense.
The 154th Wing is the largest in Hawaii and one of the largest, most complex wings in the Air National Guard. The 199th Fighter Squadron is equipped with F-22 "Raptor" fighter aircraft. The 203rd Air Refueling Squadron is equipped with KC-135R "Stratotanker" aircraft providing nonstop air-refueling. The 204th Airlift Squadron partners with the Air Force's 15th Wing, providing 40 percent of the flight crews and maintenance personnel for the active duty C-17 "Globemaster III" cargo aircraft.
The 201st Intelligence Squadron operates out of Joint Base Pearl Harbor. The unit's primary focus is to gather, analyze and interpret information from a variety of sources to allow leaders to make the necessary decisions to protect and defend the national interests of the United States. Through combined research, Air National Guard intelligence specialists create databases of information and materials to support combat mission planning and ensure our airmen are aware of enemy resources and abilities.
