The United States Air Force's 618th Tanker Airlift Control Center (TACC) is an Air Mobility Command unit located at Scott AFB, Illinois. The TACC is the Air Mobility Command hub for planning and directing tanker and transport aircraft operations around the world.
The 618th TACC is the global air operations center responsible for centralized command and control of Air Force and commercial contract air mobility assets, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It plans, schedules and tracks tanker, airlift and aeromedical evacuation aircraft worldwide to efficiently and effectively accomplish Air Mobility Command's Global Reach mission. The organization is capable of seamlessly transitioning from day-to-day operations to contingency support or disaster relief.
When the TACC stood up on 1 April 1992, it brought together a
diversity of functions, systems, and people never before assembled in a
single organization. With the standup of the Air Mobility Command
(AMC) in June 1992, the TACC became the single point of contact for
its customers and suppliers in an effort to efficiently and effectively
accomplish AMC’s Global Reach mission for the employment of all
tanker/airlift missions. Since its reassignment from HQ AMC to
Eighteenth Air Force effective 1 October 2003, the TACC has
continued to be the hub for planning, scheduling, tasking, and executing
America's mobility forces around the world.
The TACC consists of 8 directorates with over 900
people, and we are proud of our “Total Force” family. We are a
benchmark organization with over 144 Reserve Individual Mobilization
Augmentees (IMA). The entire air mobility team strives for excellence
as seen daily in lives impacted and mission successes to build a stronger
