Ros-Lehtinen Disappointed That New F-35A Fighter Jets Will Not Be Stationed At Homestead Air Reserve Base

Washington, DC – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27) made the following statement regarding the announcement that the first Reserve-led F-35A program will not be stationed at Homestead Air Reserve Base (HARB). In 2016, Ros-Lehtinen led two bipartisan letters to Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James advocating for the placement of this program at HARB.

Statement by Rep. Ros-Lehtinen:

“I’m disappointed that Homestead Air Reserve Base was not chosen to host the nation’s first Reserve-led F-35A program. Given HARB’s strategic importance to our community and nation, I will be asking the incoming administration to review this decision as quickly as practical. HARB’s 482nd Fighter Wing, with the ability to deploy anywhere around the world, was a natural partner for this program in addition to its advantages when it comes to runways, storage, and space. However, I am hopeful that the Air Force will choose to place and implement other programs in our beautiful community in the near future.”
