Wright Patterson Air Force Base is situated just northeast of Dayton, OH and includes portions of Greene and Montgomery counties. The air force base is comprised of Wright and Patterson Fields. Wright Field was originally named after aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright, who hailed from Dayton, OH. In 1948, the two airfields were merged into Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Today, the venerable base is a respected leader in the development and history of U.S. military aviation and aerospace innovation.
The Wright Patterson Air Force Base housing market includes the surrounding Ohio communities of Beavercreek, Fairborn, Bellbrook, Centerville, Kettering and Huber Heights. Beavercreek is the largest city in Greene County. Fairborn is centrally located to Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus, OH. And, Huber Heights is the third-largest suburb of Dayton with a population of roughly 40,000 people.
In a recently-released article, the Dayton (OH) Daily News reported that Wright Patterson Air Force Base now employs over 30,000 employees, including military, civilian and industry contractors — the first time the base has exceeded that number in more than thirty years — making Wright Patterson the largest single site employer in the state of Ohio.
The resurgence of the base’s employment is largely attributable to several factors, including the expansion and growth of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) and the addition of the F-35 aircraft program to Wright Patterson. The F-35 is designed to replace the older fighter jets, among them the U.S. Air Force A-10s, and F-16s and the U.S. Navy F/A-18s. Combined with a more than $182-million construction project will ensure the air force base will continue to be one of the nation’s largest facilities of its kind.
