The 31st Maintenance Operations Squadron provides maintenance management, training, programs and the resources necessary to support the 31st Maintenance Group production effort.
As the "force enabler" of the 31st MXG, the 31st MOS is a diverse work force responsible for monitoring and reporting the aircraft and engine fleet health as well as administering the wing's cost per-flying hour, quality assurance and weapons standardization programs. Through maintenance planning, scheduling, documentation, analysis, command and control, personnel training and engine management, the 31st MOS provides the 31st MXG commander all the information and tools necessary to balance sortie production and fleet management. "We keep the pointy end pointy sharp."
In order to align with the Chief of Staff of the Air Force's new Combat Wing Organization, the 31st Logistics Support Squadron was redesignated as the 31st Maintenance Operations Squadron on July 19, 2002.
Although a young squadron, the 31st MOS has already established its mark of excellence. The squadron beat out 54 other MOSs to earn the title, "Best MOS in the Air Force, 2004" and subsequently competed at the next level where it was named one of six units DoD-wide to earn the distinction as a 2005 Secretary of Defense Field-level Maintenance Award winner.
The 31st MOS continues to live up to its vision of "Training and Sustaining the World's Finest Maintainers" by providing initial, recurring and advance training across the 31st MXG. The men and women of the 31st MOS are force enablers to the entire maintenance group, ensuring readiness at all levels and within all the squadrons, thus allowing the 31st MXG to continue to provide top-notch support for all contingencies and deployments.
