A core competency of mobility air forces
is rapid global mobility.

Even though the pilot shortage is hitting the fighter units the hardest, LoForti said the mobility air forces
are now feeling the effects of the same shortfalls.
30 demonstration, Northrop Grumman connected a pilot in a C-17 transport flight simulator in Texas, an operator in a KC-135 tanker flight simulator in Florida and a boom operator in Oklahoma with all three simulators operating simultaneously via the Mobility Air Forces
Distributed Mission Operations test network.
In the Mobility Air Forces
, the Reserve Components make up 51 percent of the force, while 49 percent are Active Duty personnel.
The Air Force will realize $715 million in efficiencies by reducing fuel and energy consumption within the Mobility Air Forces
. We will leverage proven commercial aviation policy and practices for flight planning and weight reduction--both of which reduce the amount of fuel required to accomplish the mobility mission.
From this time forward, Airmen would identify themselves as members of the combat air forces, mobility air forces
, or the space community.
Chris Sherman's course, the MOS Mobility Air Forces
Mobile Command and Control Leadership Course, the effort is about making Airmen better by creating contingency response leaders.
It will provide a common and consistent operational command and control framework across the mobility air forces
(22) At this point, the common course of action throughout history has been to consolidate mobility air forces
. This consolidation places most airlift and tanker assets under one command.
A huge portion of the military burden in support of these operations falls on the shoulders of the Mobility Air Forces
"Because of this, it was imperative to increase fuel efficiency across the mobility air forces
