*****MUST READ BEFORE GOING TO EL CENTRO AT ANYTIME*****
« on: September 23, 2011, 03:03:08 PM »
Michelle contacted a couple of the aviation fourm websites like us AzAP and Fencecheck to post these guidelines when we go down there to shoot off or on base, during the week or the weekend. If we follow these rules there should be no problems and we are the extra eyes and for NAFEC and should we see something call Michelle or MP's.  We(ApSocal, AzAP, FC and other photogs) have a good relationship between Michelle and NAF El Centro this this only helps.

Aviation Photographers:

NAF El Centro has had an excellent long standing relationship with aviation photographers from around the world.  We have played host, over the years, to thousands of you from around the world, both on and off the installation.  With increasing security concerns, we are constantly trying to balance the needs of the installation with the desires of the photographers.  We, at NAFEC, believe that you are one of the best ways that we have to tell the story of our mission and the world class aviators that train here.  We are hopeful to be able to continue to that relationship.

NAF El Centro offers aviation photography days for large groups, multiple times a year as well as playing host to smaller groups on a less frequent basis, when manning permits.  In addition, we have allowed photographers to photograph from outside the installation on an almost daily basis.  In order to be able to continue to do this in the future, we are asking for your continued assistance and wanted to remind everyone of our policy.

Photocalls for shooting inside the installation and on the flight line will be announced in message forums by the group administrators.

Requests for smaller tours should be made as far in advance as possible.

For shooting outside the installation:


*Please call or email the NAFEC Public Affairs Office and let us know when you would like to be outside the fenceline and where you will be.

*If you haven't been to the base in the last year, please be prepared to provide us with your information:  Full Name, Date of Birth, Driver's License Number and State of Issue.  For our foreign visitors, I will also need your passport number.

*Please let us know, if possible, what type of vehicle you will be driving.

*Finally, be vigilant!  If you see someone or something that doesn't look right when you are out there, let us know


Thanks for all you do for us and we hope to be able to continue this relationship long into the future.

Very Respectfully,

Michelle R. Dee

Please be advised, this procedure is now in place and should be followed at ALL TIMES.  Alot of us would do this already so that Michelle and the MP's were aware.
