2019 was a busy and rewarding year for Travis Air Base personnel. From providing relief efforts in Haiti in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian to deploying contingency response Airmen to Saudi Arabia in support of Operation Inherent Resolve to providing life-saving medical care locally, the key to our success was the strong partnerships we share across the base, county, and state.
Travis is composed of three primary mobility organizations. The host wing, the 60th Air Mobility Wing, works seamlessly with the 349th Air Mobility Wing, the Air Force’s largest associate reserve wing. This total force team affords war ready support to sustain, maintain, and operate our major weapon systems. Our team also includes one group from the 621st Contingency Response Wing and more than 50 partner organizations teaming from all four sister services. Our Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen and civilians provide support wherever and whenever our nation requires.
The 60 AMW’s mission is to rapidly project American power anytime … anywhere. Our major warfighting platforms include the C‐5M Super Galaxy, C‐17 Globemaster III and KC‐10 Extender aircraft, the aerial port, and David Grant USAF Medical Center, which serves nearly 500,000 Department of Defense beneficiaries annually. Our partners in the 621st serve as America’s 9‐1‐1 force, ready to deploy within 12 hours in support of contingencies or humanitarian operations around the globe. Together, Team Travis delivers hope, fuels to the fight, and saves lives.
Spanning multiple operations, the 60th and 349th Air Mobility Wings flew more than 27,000 hours and nearly 5,900 sorties in 2019. We delivered more than 24 million gallons of fuel to U.S. and coalition aircraft during midair refuelings, transported over 22,000 people and moved more than 30,000 tons of cargo into our many theaters of operation. Currently, more than 640 Travis Airmen are deployed around the world. Just as our servicemen and women sacrifice by deploying overseas, our military spouses and families also sacrifice a great deal. Without their unwavering support, mission accomplishment would not be possible.
As we are engaged in operations around the world, at home we continue to strive to improve our quality of life, our capabilities and support to the community. More than 34,000 people live or work on Travis, creating more than $2.1 billion in annual economic impact to the community. We are proud to serve the Air Force and our local partners as the largest single contributor to Solano County economic activity. We deeply appreciate your continued
support as we build upon our foundation of excellence!
