TOP STORY >> Little Rock AFB gets ready for Winter Wingman Day

By 19th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Little Rock Air Force Base will be participating in Winter Wingman Day on Feb. 27. 

Winter Wingman Day is a no-fly, down day for active duty, Guard and Reserve members of Team Little Rock. The day is designed for base personnel to focus solely on resilience and strengthening their Comprehensive Airmen Fitness. Classes will be held throughout the day and catered toward the four CAF domains: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.

With the Wingman University concept, Team Little Rock members will choose the classes they would like to attend. Personnel are required to attend three classes plus their respective Commander’s Call. However, the Airman and Family Readiness Center will be teaching a finance class during all commanders’ calls to coincide with Military Saves Week. 

Personnel are encouraged to attend classes in areas they feel they need to strengthen. Most classes will run for 45 to 90 minutes, with two-hour classes available.

There are approximately 64 classes offered in 144 time slots, providing a variety of options for Airmen to choose from. Fourteen additional classes have been added to this year’s Wingman Day, and each class offered is available based on Airmen’s direct responses and feedback from 2014. 

Every class will have a sign in sheet on Wingman Day, but personnel must sign up in advance through the Leadership Pathways portal and Appointment Plus. To streamline class selections, register your account now at the Leadership Pathways portal: All personnel will receive an email notification when registration opens. Class registration will be closed at the end of Wednesday, Feb. 26, and changes may not be made after this date.

Winter Wingman Day is not the only time you can take CAF classes focused on your wellbeing and self-improvement. Throughout the year Leadership Pathways will list the schedule of classes offered. 

“A great amount of time, money and resources are spent on making this a good program,” said Stephanie Wynn, the community support coordinator. “Make the most of the down day, and get into the classes that will add tools to your respective toolbox.”

Wynn is interested in Airmen feedback to improve this program. 

“This is your opportunity to speak up,” she said. “Give feedback and let us know what classes we can add to make future Wingman days beneficial to you.”
