Robins ALC Absorbs C-130J Sustainment

The Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins AFB, Ga., now owns the mission of C-130J sustainment, taking the task over from the product team at Aeronautical Systems Center, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. ASC had contracted for sustainment of the new airlifters, while the WRALC—over a period of three years—developed a partnership with Lockheed Martin, Rolls Royce, and Dowty Propellers to work with the ALC on maintaining the new Hercules airlifters. According to the Robins Rev-Up, ALC officials call the action a major milestone for the C-130J program. By 2011, officials expect to have C-130J repair capabilities activated at all three of the Air Force’s ALCs. (The other two are Ogden ALC, Hill AFB, Utah, and Oklahoma City ALC, Tinker AFB, Okla.)
