Description

The history of this base dates back to 1939 when some land was leased in the southern part of Albuquerque, next to the already existing Bernalillo County international airport with which it shares runways. It spreads over 209 square km, meaning it is the largest military installation in the Materiel Command. The primary objective of this base is to support any nuclear mission in safety measures, regardless of its purpose.


Bernalillo County has a mild, desert climate with hot summers and winter temperatures in the 40s. Kirtland AFB and the surrounding region are home to many historical sites, museums, art galleries, theaters, great restaurants, and breweries. There are a multitude of recreational opportunities on base, including arts and crafts, bowling, camping, golfing, and swimming.
