Read the following message from Nevada Wing Commander, Col. Tim Hahn:
I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Nevada Wing Website. Please feel free to browse around. Nevada is the 7th largest state in the nation, yet our population is only 45th. I'm sure most of that population is here for exactly that reason!
The Nevada Wing performs missions for Nevada and the nation everyday. We excel at the three mandated missions of Cadet Programs, Aerospace Education, and Emergency Services. Our cadet program is growing so fast that it's difficult to keep track. Our cadet membership has increased almost 70% in four years.
The Nevada Wing supports our citizens with both membership and public service. We have a 90 minute response time to any call for emergencies, and we host the only fully self sustainable Incident Managament Assistance Team capable of flying anywhere in the 50 states with 4 hours notice.
During major troop deployments the Nevada Wing plays host to thousands of military personnel in transit providing areas for rest, relaxation, and food. This was fully demonstrated in 2012 when we assisted with over 30,000 Marines passing through Nevada.
The Nevada Wing is in integral part of the Aviation Nation Air Show at Nellis AFB each year. We perform low altitude surveys of restricted flight areas to keep our nation's pilots safe. We also perform other support missions for the United States Military as a true Auxiliary to the Air Force.
The Nevada Wing is now based at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Commander, Nevada Wing
