Maxwell Air Force Base is in line to be the home for the MH-139A Grey Wolf Formal Training Unit, a strategic and economic coup for the facility as another base mission fades away.

The Air Force announced Nov. 20 it has chosen Maxwell’s 908th Airlift Wing as the preferred location to host the Grey Wolf, which is the replacement platform for the UH-1N Huey helicopter. The Hueys support the Air Force’s Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) missions.

The Air Force plans to conduct an environmental impact analysis before making its final basing decision in the winter of 2021, according to an Air Force news release. The first aircraft are scheduled to arrive in 2023.
