Air Force sorties markedly higher in 2010

August 2, 2010

As published by AIR FORCE Magazine's Daily Report, U.S. Air Force total air sorties continue at a markedly higher volume than one year ago. Using the latest date available, July 23, 2010, the Air Force had flown 82,136 total flights in U.S. Central Command since the beginning of the calendar year. One year earlier, July 23, 2009, the number of flights for that year was 64,377. That is growth of 27 percent over that one-year span. In 2008, the July 23 number was about 60,000. The steady climb in total sorties began in the latter half of 2009.
