Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 163 (VMM-163) is a United States Marine Corps helicopter squadron consisting of MV-22 Osprey transport tiltrotors. The squadron, known as the “Ridge Runners”, is based at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California and falls under the command of Marine Aircraft Group 16 (MAG-16) and the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW).

The Squadron’s nickname, “Ridge Runners”, was bestowed as a result of typhoon rescue and relief operations in the mountainous terrain surrounding Hagman, Japan.
