How can I get directions?

DRIVING
Newcomers who arrive in their vehicles will more than likely be traveling on Interstate 75. Take exit 146 to the Georgia Highway 247 Connector (also called Watson Blvd.). The road will take you directly to the base, about 10 miles away from the exit.You can also exit coming from the north at exit 160A and take Highway 247 about 15 miles south to the base. 

Military members entering at the Visitor's Center at Gate 3, which is open 24 hours a day, should report directly to the orderly room of the organization they are assigned. 

The orderly room will contact the Military Personnel Flight to schedule an appointment for in-processing. If there are any questions about where to report upon arrival, military members will be directed to the Military Personnel Flight's customer service office in Building 767. After hours,members will be directed to the 24-hour arrival point, the billeting office in Building 557.

You may e-mail your tour request to the public affairs office. Itineraries are individually planned based on each group's requirements. Tours are conducted Monday through Friday only during the business day. 

A minimum of 60 days notice is required for all tours and requests are taken on a first come, first served basis and schedules fill up quickly. You can contact the office to check the availability of a specific date but a written request is required to schedule the tour.

Oct 28, 2016 issue is the last edition of the Robins Rev-Up until we secure a new contract. The Telegraph published and distributed the Rev-Up for Robins Air Force Base for nearly 20 years.  In anticipation of the expiration of the current contract, The Telegraph notified Robins that they did not intend to compete for the new contract as it was no longer a financially viable venture for their company. Robins and Telegraph officials held several meetings to determine if a mutually-beneficial solution could be reached, but we were unsuccessful.  The Telegraph did extend its services to Robins for an additional 30 days to provide more time for the transition.

We anticipate the next Rev-Up publishing and distribution contract will be awarded on a competitive basis in the upcoming months.  Awarding a new contract is a lengthy process and no timetable can be set at this time, but we are taking all efforts to expedite the restoration of RevUp operations.  In the meantime, news and information regarding base events and activities can be found on the Robins AFB official home page at www.robins.af.mil or our Robins Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/RobinsPublicAffairs/.

Editor’s note: For more information, call the Public Affairs office at 478-926-2137.
