|Part of||Air Mobility Command|
The PHOENIX MOBILITY (PM) PROGRAM is an Air Mobility Command(AMC)-sponsored professional development program for board selected Air Force officers with 4–8 years commissioned service. The purpose of the program is to develop officers with a strong foundation in expeditionary mobility operations while developing an understanding of senior leadership responsibilities. The PHOENIX MOBILITY program is open to rated and nonrated line officers. Selected officers will become fluent in Air and Space Operations Center (AOC) operations, Contingency Response Wing (CRW) operations, and En Route Mobility Operations (EMO). This 36-month assignment builds mobility leaders by immersing the officers into the heart of the AMC mission. Rated PHOENIX MOBILITY officers who are current and qualified in a MWS will be authorized to fly in attached status.
The program focuses on establishing a foundation of competencies associated with expeditionary mobility operations. These competencies can be divided into four distinct areas: AOC operations, CRW operations, EMO and Officer Professional Development (OPD). Each PHOENIX MOBILITY officer will gain an in-depth knowledge of each area to meet the overall goal of developing future senior leaders with a sound understanding of all aspects of air mobility operations. PHOENIX MOBILITY officers can expect to be transitioned throughout the CRW/Expeditionary Mobility Task Force (EMTF) in order to gain exposure to the full spectrum of mobility operations.
The PHOENIX MOBILITY PROGRAM is a bicoastal organization. The east coast part of the program is in the Twenty-First Expeditionary Task Force at McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey. The west coast part of the program is in the Fifteenth Expeditionary Task Force at Travis Air Force Base, California.
