    The 728th Air Mobility Squadron maintains all transient and assigned aircraft while serving as the gateway to U.S. Air Forces Central Command. The squadron falls under the 521st Air Mobility Operations Group, headquartered at Naval Station Rota, Spain and the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing, headquartered at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. The unit provides expertise in three core competencies: aerial port operations, aircraft maintenance and command and control. Together, they ensure safe and effective en route support for missions transiting Europe, Africa, and Southwest Asia and support five combatant commanders with aerial port operations, aircraft maintenance, and command and control. The aerial port operations section works around-the-clock to ensure the necessary cargo gets to the right places in a safe and timely manner. The aircraft maintenance flight projects Air Mobility Command’s global air mobility mission by executing flight line operations to generate, launch, recover, service and repair C-17 Globemaster III, C-5 Galaxy, and other commercial cargo aircraft. The air terminal operations center is responsible for all coordination between the terminal, Airmen in the freight and the aircraft itself to keep all sections updated and synchronized.
