The Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) partnered with Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and the Army Corps of Engineers to facilitate a multi-phase construction program that aims to build infrastructure for the KC-46A Pegasus aerial refueling vehicle.
Construction efforts are underway at various military installations including Tinker AFB, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and Travis AFB. AFCEC also finished constructing a system integration laboratory and depot maintenance dock and is building a 156-acre maintenance campus for KC-46A units.
Rafael Gonzalez, project manager at AFCEC, said the projects are expected to run through 2029. Travis AFB is slated to receive a KC-46A aircraft by 2023, while 24 additional units will arrive in 2025.
