Army Jet Detachment

Army Priority Air Transport provides long-range, executive airlift around the world. The Army’s First Jet Detachment was established with the ability to send its leaders more than 5,000 nautical miles non-stop, anywhere in the world. The jet detachment operates three short-range UC-35 Cessna Citations and three large-cabin, long-range Gulfstream V jets. USAPAT, which began its life within the Military District of Washington, then fell under the Operational Support Airlift Command and other agencies came back with creation of MDW’s Air Operations Group in December 2005.
