The 60th Air Mobility Wing is the largest air mobility organization in terms of personnel in the Air Force with a versatile all-jet fleet of C-5M Super Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III cargo aircraft and KC-10 Extender refueling aircraft. As the host unit of Travis Air Force Base, Calif., the wing controls more than $11 billion in total resources, including 6,455 acres, 403 buildings and about 1,320 military family housing units. It handles more cargo and passengers than any other military air terminal in the United States. Travis is the West Coast terminal for aeromedical evacuation aircraft returning sick or injured patients from the Pacific area.
Part of the Air Mobility Command, the 60th AMW is responsible for strategic airlift and air refueling missions circling the globe. The unit’s primary roles are to provide rapid, reliable airlift of American fighting forces anywhere on earth in support of national objectives and to extend the reach of American and allied air power through mid-air refueling. Wing activity is primarily focused in the Pacific and Indian Ocean area, including Alaska and Antarctica. However, the 60th AMW crews can fly support missions anywhere in the world to fulfill its motto of being “America’s First Choice” for providing true Global Reach.
The wing maintains a work force of approximately 7,063 active-duty military and 3,268 civilian personnel. In addition, more than 3,078 reservists assigned to the associate 349th AMW combine with their active duty and civilian counterparts to form a fully integrated total force team. The massive Travis work force makes an economic impact in the local community of more than $4.5 million daily.
The 60th AMW is organized into four groups: Operations, Maintenance, Mission Support and Medical. Additionally, the wing commander has the support of 17 staff agencies.
The 60th AMW staff is made up from a variety of functions. These functions include command section administration, legal, plans and programs, safety, command and control, chapel, public affairs, equal opportunity office, protocol, manpower and quality, treaty compliance, history and the museum.
