The mission of the Advanced Airlift Tactics Training Center (AATTC) is to increase the war fighting 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 15 allied nations.

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.
The AATTC also publishes a quarterly tactics newsletter distributed worldwide. 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. The AATTC offers the following courses to DoD personnel and our allies:
