The tenant unit on Sheppard Air Force Base is the 80th Flying Training Wing. The 80th FTW hosts the world's only internationally manned and managed pilot training program. Celebrated 30 years in 2011, the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program has now delivered over 6,600 trained combat pilots to our NATO allies. 

The 80th Flying Training Wing operates the Air Force's second busiest joint-use airfield outside of a combat zone. Its 202 aircraft flew approximately 240 sorties per day in 2013, which equates to over 66,000 flight hours annually. The wing delivers over  200 Undergraduate Pilot Training graduates annually, along with 150 graduates of Introduction to Fighter fundamentals and 75 Pilot Instructor Training graduates. 13 NATO countries participate in the unique Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program. 

The ENJJPT Program would not be what it is today without the ENJJPT Sponsor Program, whereby citizens from the local community play a key role in the welcoming and supporting new and returning members of the ENJJPT family. In 2014 the ENJJPT Sponsor Program was awarded the AETC International Sutdent Support Award. This award recognizes those who support the international training and education mission by sharing their homes, families and time to international families during their tour in the U.S.
