  Affiliation Program

Designed to develop a mutual understanding of air mobility
requirements and capabilities

Introduction
The 146th ALCF is committed to providing the best affiliation training in the Air Force. We provide instruction in equipment preparation and airlift planning, hands-on static load training, and are a resource that units can count on for load validation when deploying by air.

The AMC Affiliation Program is designed to develop a mutual understanding of air mobility requirements and capabilities and to foster an informed, professional, and cooperative management environment for DOD users of military airlift and its providers. The goal is to teach DOD airlift users how to plan, prepare, and deploy by air quickly, efficiently, and safely with minimal Air Force assistance.

Affiliation
is the relationship between an ALCF and designated Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force units. This relationship provides the avenue necessary for unit level coordination between AMC and the airlift user (ref AFI 10-221, 4.3).
