“We are extremely honored to have been selected to provide training for the pilots and crews of Air Force One and the Presidential Airlift Group. The Air Force's exacting demands for professionalism, efficiency and security make this contract award even more meaningful,” said William J. Flynn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Air Worldwide.

He continued, “Atlas Air's experience operating the world's largest fleet of Boeing 747 Freighters to over 90 countries allows us to provide up-to-date training for these highly experienced crews. Our own Atlas pilots, who receive the same training at our Miami training center, support the Department of Defense's Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) cargo and passenger requirements.”

Air Force One crews provide air transport for the President of the United States. “Air Force One,” the designated call sign when the president is on board, consists of two specially configured Boeing 747-200B aircraft.
