Flying - Air Mobility Mission

SERVE CLOSE TO HOME, SAVE LIVES AROUND THE WORLD

Air Mobility Mission

The ultimate measure of Air Mobility is the ability to rapidly move personnel and equipment anywhere in the world when needed, and to sustain that force for as long as needed. This will include the strategic airlift of personnel and cargo, tactical airdrop of personnel, equipment and supplies and the transport of litters and ambulatory patients during aeromedical evacuations when required.
