tabOur Mission 
The mission of the Advanced Airlift Tactics Training Center (AATTC) is increasing the warfighting effectiveness and survivability of mobility forces. The AATTC is in its third decade of providing advanced tactical training to airlift aircrews from the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve Command, Air Mobility Command, Air Combat Command, Air Force Special Operations Command, United States Marine Corps, and 16 allied nations. Through a Total Force Initiative, AATTC also provides Tactics Analysis, Tactics Development, and Electronic Warfare Development for the mobility community.

The AATTC functions as a clearinghouse for gathering and disseminating airlift tactics information. Since 1983, the AATTC has hosted an annual tactics symposium in St. Joseph, MO. Attendees from all branches of the Department of Defense as well as government contractors and numerous allied nations are represented.

Serving as the cornerstone for aircraft tactics, the AATTC has maintained a reputation as the mobility air force's "Tactics Center of Excellence" since its inception.
Please join us at this year's Symposium. This year, we are focusing on aircraft modernization priorities for the operator. The symposium will culminate in a one-day working group. These sessions are designed to provide a forum for warfighters to consolidate the 4 different acquisition priority lists and provide our inputs to the people who make procurement decisions. We will continue to provide a great environment for networking and reaffirming ties within the MAF tactics and intelligence community, including our Allies.

Welcome to the Advanced Airlift Tactics Training Center. We are a team made up of Active Duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve personnel joined frequently by experts from the field and industry. We are dedicated to increasing the war fighting effectiveness and survivability of US and Allied Mobility and Intel Forces. The AATTC has evolved over the last three decades into the Center of Excellence that performs Tactics Analysis, Development, Test and Training to meet the emerging critical needs of the mobility community.

For 31 years our annual Tactics and Intel Symposium has been the premier event that brings our community together to discuss and share ideas and provide the essential networking that propels our mission forward. The relationships and innovation that we foster at the AATTC makes a direct and enduring impact for the mobility community. We are proud of our heritage of innovation and continue to strive to stay on the cutting edge of tactics and technology to ensure your success.

I invite you to look over our web site, contact our experts and attend one of our courses.

tabCourse Listing 
Aircrew Flying Courses
The 11-Day Aircrew Flying Courses are conducted in two phases. The first phase, flown in St Joseph, MO consists of academics and flying instruction focused on mission planning and defensive maneuvering. The second phase is flown at Ft Huachuca, AZ and focuses on low-level mountain flying, dissimilar air combat maneuvering, and realistic combat aerial delivery sorties. Certain classes are designated as Day/Night classes, which include focused instruction on NVG use in hostile environments.

Advanced Air Mobility Intelligence Course (AAMIC)
The cornerstone of AAMIC is training air mobility intel personnel how to apply the principles of IPOE- the Intelligence Preparation of the Operational Environment. AAMIC students receive focused training on threats to mobility forces, use of geospatial visualization techniques, and in-depth mission planning and briefing skills. Students leave prepared to give high quality unit-level intelligence support to mobility aircrews.

Advanced Airlift Mobility Intelligence Course-Instructor Evaluator (AAMIC-IE)
This course is the only formal instructor/evaluator upgrade training offered to intelligence professionals in the USAF. It focuses on how to create a unit level training and evaluation program, as well as administer that program with effective evaluation of junior intelligence personnel.

International Intelligence Mobility Course (IMIC)
The IMIC develops the skills necessary to support airland and air drop missions conducted by allied nations. IMIC students further build and develop their experience by combining analysis and tactics during mission planning. This is accomplished through an advanced curriculum of tactical level intelligence application. Students will be challenged by the advanced training in three blocks: analysis, threat knowledge, and mission planning. Students exercise these learned skill sets in a deployed environment, putting into practice analysis, mission planning, briefing, debriefing, and reporting. Students exercise intelligence instruction and evaluation skill sets as they relate to unit level intelligence responsibilities.

Combat Aircrew Tactics Studies (CATS)/Mobility Electronic Combat Officer Course (MECOC)
CATS/MECOC is AMC's two-week intermediate-level combat employment and defensive systems course designed to develop MAF tacticians with the qualifications to act as unit level Chief of Tactics and fulfill the duties of Electronic Combat Officer (ECO) in accordance with AMCI 11-207.

Mobility Commander's Tactics Course (MCTC)
The Mobility Commander's Tactics Course (MCTC) is a two day course designed to instruct operations squadron and group commanders, as well as intelligence unit commanders in AMC's current contingency employment planning policies.

Mobility Airlift Data Link Manager Course (MDMC)
MDMC is a two day course designed to provide the knowledge necessary for a Unit Data Link Manager to set up a data link program at their base and to support DRC and RTIC. The information presented covers airlift Tactical
Data Link (TDL) employment concepts, engineering level knowledge of the SADL and ARC-210 terminals, and RTIC/DRC TDL Manager responsibilities. This knowledge base will help a unit TDL SME prepare a wing to successfully manage, deploy and integrate TDL capability.
