Home to roughly 35 reserve Airmen and situated on the flight-line, separate from most other Tinker Air Force Base units, the 10th FLTS flies four different types of aircraft after they have undergone programmed depot maintenance at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center or received battle-damage repair.
