The 463 Airlift Wing has an honored military record going back to flying C-47 aircraft during the darkest days of World War II. The first wing to operate C-130 aircraft was the 463 TAW at Ardmore Oklahoma in the early 50s. At the time this Local Lodge was chartered, the 463 Air Lift Wing was located at Little Rock Air Force Base and the 127 chartering Members chose the Lodge Number 463 in honor of them.
Today, this Local Union represents over 200 members that are employed by Lockheed Martin, Delaware Resource Group, Nova Technologies, Kay & Associates and CAE USA at Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville, Arkansas. As a team, we educate over 2000 students annually from not just the United States but from nations around the globe. Our members develop, create, maintain and distribute C-130 aircrew and maintenance courseware and provide superior aircrew instruction and refresher training to Air Force and Marine students. We also maintain the simulators utilized during training and provide mechanical and repair services for the C-130J aircraft. Our support people keep behind the scenes tasks and functions flowing seamlessly. We are the flagship in training facilities for ATS contracts.
