970th Airborne Air Control Squadron [970th AACS]
The 970th AACS is the flying organization of the 513th ACG. It performs aircrew training and traditional operations functions. Reserve E-3 aircrew members are required to fly the same type sorties as their active-duty counterparts to remain proficient and combat ready.
Reserve crewmembers may either perform all-Reserve or mixed missions with their active-duty counterparts. The squadron shares the workload with their active-duty counterparts, the 552nd Air Control Wing, also located at Tinker Air Force Base, in operating and maintaining the fleet of E-3 Sentry aircraft.
As civilians, many of the pilots assigned to the squadron are employed by commercial airlines. As military pilots, they are required to fly the same type sorties as their active-duty counterparts to remain proficient and combat ready.
