Over the years Altus' role has evolved into four distinct missions. Our primary mission, as the nation's C-17, and KC-135 Strategic Airlift and Air Refueling Training School, is to provide quality training to produce the finest combat-ready aircrew members--ensuring global reach for America. In with our training mission, our instructor force maintains operation currency so that they, as highly-qualified, combat-ready aircrew members, can deploy to augment worldwide contingencies. We maintain approximately 550 mobility positions available for immediate worldwide deployment. Finally, we act as the wartime aerial port of embarkation for over 27,000 soldiers, and their associated equipment, from the U.S. Army, Fort Sill, Oklahoma, located 50 miles east of Altus.
