All DOD ID Cardholders have access to the APD flight line viewing area through the main entry control point located next to the Air Mobility Command Terminal.  All personnel must have valid identification on them to re-enter main base.

Parking and Transportation

Free shuttles from on-base parking will begin rotations at 8 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.  The blue shuttle will begin at the Mustang Center and the orange shuttle will begin at the Osan Medical Clinic’s parking lot.  Both routes will stop at building 600 before dropping off riders at the main entry control point.
