  • 2 Urban Operations Sites
  • 2 Leadership Reaction Courses
  • 1 CBRN Training Facility
  • 3 Land Navigation Courses
  • Aviation Gunnery Range Complex: With 31 hover fire pads and 3 close combat attack run and dive firing lanes.

Contact and Scheduling: For inquiries on firing, contact the Range Operations Firing Desk at (334) 255-4303 or (334) 255-4486. For safety, scheduling, or general operations, reach out to Range Ops Cell/Safety/Scheduling at (334) 255-4793 or (334) 255-4978.

Trainers seeking to schedule a session at the Fort Novosel training site can access the Range Facility Management Support System (RFMSS) for scheduling and availability. This system offers a non-graphical remote scheduling tool for both visiting and local units. Those without an RFMSS account can initiate their request by contacting Fort Novosel Range Operations.

Booking Requirements: Most range and training areas mandate scheduling at least 30 days in advance. It’s imperative to attend a squaring meeting no later than 10 days prior to the event. These meetings take place on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. Non-attendance might lead to cancellation.

Training Documents:

  • A risk assessment (DD Form 2977 Deliberate Risk Assessment Worksheet)
  • Written certification for individuals assigned as OIC, range safety officer (RSO), and laser range safety officer (LRSO). The Range OIC/RSO Roster memo serves as a reference.

Firing Desk: The Fort Novosel Range Operations Firing Desk operates continuously, barring major holidays. Potential visitors can inquire about availability and requirements by calling (334) 255-4303.

User Insights: Reviewers appreciate the well-maintained range and its no-cost access for service members and retirees. The range’s free access is particularly highlighted, along with its cleanliness. However, users should be prepared for a multitude of rules and required procedures. The range extends to 300m, providing target stands, but participants must bring their own targets. Users need to visit Range Operations with relevant documentation before using the range. The privately-owned weapons range welcomes the public, with operational hours from 1330 until sunset on weekdays and from sunrise to sunset on weekends. It’s essential for users to present the original Fort Novosel weapons registration and photo ID. Note: hours may vary depending on scheduled unit training or holidays.
