We provide complete C-5 training for the entire fleet of 111 C-5 A/B aircraft. Our school houses are located at Lackland, Dover, Westover and Travis Air Force bases. We also provide training continuity oversight for C-5 simulators for approximately nine simulators across the four locations.

The C-5 is operated by three major commands; Air Mobility Command, the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command. Over 70 selectively manned aircrew instructors train and produce up to 500 aircrew members in nine different courses for pilots, loadmasters and engineers at every level.

What makes this C-5 Formal Training Unit unique is it is almost entirely staffed by Air Force reservists who are responsible for training all aircrew, including active duty, on the massive C-5M aircraft.

The first students graduated from the flight training program on October 6, 2006.
