217th Air Operations Group

Welcome to the 217th Air Operations Group!

The 217th  AOG is a unique organizational structure t
o support the 17th Air Force (AFAFRICA).  The 217th AOG has five squadrons that include air support, communications, intel, mobility, and operations in a
largely self-contained package.

Unlike many Air National Guard units, the 217th AOG does not have a "stand-alone" role, instead we are an integral part of the 17th Air Force and provide essential assistance so that they can complete their mission.

Our members serve here in Battle Creek, in Germany, and all over Africa.  Typical missions include: training and coordination exercises with African partners, humanitarian assistance, engaging senior leaders, and providing logistical support for overseas contingency operations.
