The 167th Airlift Wing is one of the 2018 Mobility Air Forces Aviation Energy and Innovation Wings of the Year! A wing’s Aviation Energy Innovation Rating is its average aviation fuel burn rate normalized for the Mission Design Series, cargo weight, mission type, and sortie length relative to the 2011 enterprise baseline burn rate. Basically, our pilots make a habit of choosing flight routes and altitudes that maximize fuel efficiency. Way to go!
