The 618th Air Operations Center, located at Scott Air Force Base, IL, is the Department of Defense's largest Air Operations Center, bringing together over 800 active duty, Reserve, National Guard, civilian and contractor personnel to support global mobility operations. We serve as Air Mobility Command's expert when planning, tasking, executing, and assessing mobility missions; an invaluable resource when maintaining America's global reach. 

We proudly provide unrivaled command and control across the full-spectrum of mobility operations to include airlift, air refueling, aeromedical evacuation, and the global mobility support system. Commanding a fleet of nearly 1,100 mobility aircraft, the 618 AOC provides our warfighters downrange with the mobility support they need to ensure mission success. 

The lights are always on in the AOC, as we maintain 24/7 operations, working around-the-clock to best meet the demands of the mission. For over 30 years, the 618 AOC has been the focal point when providing command and control to mobility forces, ensuring global delivery whenever and wherever we're needed. 

Anytime, anywhere, we stand ready to support mobility operations in contested environments through world-class, multi-domain command and control.
