Over the years, the 97th Air Mobility Wing’s role has evolved into four distinct missions as the Air Force’s Combat Mobility and Expeditionary Training Center of Excellence. Our primary mission, is being the Strategic Airlift and Air Refueling Training School for the nation's KC-46 Pegasus, C-17 Globemaster III and KC-135 Stratotanker. Our Formal Training Unit’s vision, is to provide quality training to produce the finest combat-ready aircrew members--ensuring global reach for the United States. In with our training mission, our instructor force maintains operation currency so that they, as highly-qualified, combat-ready aircrew members, can deploy to augment worldwide contingencies. We maintain approximately 550 mobility positions available for immediate worldwide deployment. Finally, we act as the wartime aerial port of embarkation for over 27,000 soldiers, and their associated equipment, from the U.S. Army, Fort Sill, Oklahoma, located 50 miles east of Altus.>
