185th Air Refueling Wing ~ "Sioux City, Iowa --
Space available air transportation is back up and running at the Iowa Air National Guard’s 185th Air Refueling Wing in Sioux City, Iowa. Space-A is a program targeted towards active-duty members, guard, reserve, and military retirees for free travel.
Space-A has been available in Western Iowa since the 185th was converted in the early-2000s. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the Sioux City Gateway Airport runway closure that occurred in 2022, Space-A had been suspended for almost three years.
According to Senior Master Sgt. Aaron Christensen, the 185th ARW Superintendent of Air Transportation Function, the Space-A program is meant to boost morale and offer traveling opportunities.
Christensen added that Space-A opportunities that depart Sioux City will be posted only up to 72 hours in advance to the public due to operational security. Travelers who take advantage of the program must stay vigilant and make sure they have the necessary funds to return home in case there are no available returning Space-A flights." ~ 185th Air Refueling Wing
