JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii -- The Pacific Air Forces app is now available on Air Force Connect, the Air Force-wide mobile app.
The app is equipped with features exclusively designed to enable, engage and empower Airmen across the globe. The mobile app provides Airmen, their families and visitors a one-stop shop for locating base information.
“Having the phone app is a huge win for both our military and family members,” said Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Johnson, PACAF command chief. “It will provide a listing of resources we have available and will also highlight activities in and around our communities. Having this kind of access at our fingertips will hopefully drive more awareness of things that we offer and ultimately help our Airmen and their families be more resilient.”
Airmen can access local content by adding their unit as a “Favorite” within the app. Once added, users can swipe left and right from the home screen to access their saved local content.
The PACAF app through Air Force Connect, gives Airmen and their families an additional avenue to access pertinent information on the go.
Popular features include the community connections, directory, a physical fitness test calculator, as well as links to the PACAF website and social media platforms. All features can be customized at the local base level to meet specific needs.
One feature is based off the PACAF community connections desktop app, the first ever major command wide app that centralizes over 150 helping agencies.
Johnson added as the app goes live, we hope the information is useful to our entire team. PACAF Public Affairs asks for feedback to improve the user’s experience and to ensure the app continues to provide the most relevant information. Users can submit comments via the “Contact Us” feature in the app.
AF Connect is available for free on Android and iOS from the Google Play store and Apple App store.
