The focal point for maintaining and supplying all Air Force equipment and weapon systems rests on the shoulders of the men and women at the Air Force Sustainment Center (AFSC)
Our success is rooted in the agility of our operations that can not only provide scheduled support but, more importantly, respond immediately and effectively to the unexpected.
But success also stems from our unwavering commitment to the old fashioned “job well done.” Quality execution in both planning and implementation gives the Air Force the tools and support they need to accomplish their mission in air, space, and cyberspace.

Our sustainment team performs functions such as initial provisioning, cataloging, inventory management and warehousing, and depot- and field-level maintenance. When you look at the equipment above you can see why this is a fascinating and exciting challenge.
One of the primary functions performed by AFSC is Programmed Depot Maintenance (PDM). PDM occurs at regularly scheduled intervals throughout the life of every aircraft. Dedicated maintenance teams work diligently to extend the life and capabilities of aircraft in the Air Force inventory.
AFSC is part of the Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS). That’s the indispensable force that provides the brain power and manpower that keep the Air Force ready for action.
At 170,000 strong we at AFCS are a force to be reckoned with. We fill positions in over 600 different occupations. Dedicated and confident, we work shoulder to shoulder with Airmen around the country and around the world, committed to the vital Air Force mission in air, space, and cyberspace.
Together we are... Forces. Joined.
To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
