The 19th Logistics Readiness Squadron vehicle management flight’s mission is to provide Team Little Rock with the most reliable transportation possible and to maintain its $52 million and 529-vehicle fleet in the utmost safe and serviceable condition. The 19th LRS vehicle management flight consists of six different shops: vehicle management and analysis, general purpose, special purpose, fire- truck maintenance, material handling equipment and refueling maintenance. Vehicle management maintains and services all Team Little Rock’s general purpose transportation as well as fire protection vehicles, cargo loaders, forklifts, aircraft refueling vehicles, flightline support and civil engineering heavy equipment. The flight also conducts maintenance on vehicles that support training missions at Fort Polk and Alexandria Air Park, La. The vehicle management flight plays a key role in TLR’s mission generation by providing its personnel with safe and serviceable transportation that’s capable of safely loading, unloading and servicing the world’s largest C-130 fleet and sustaining fire protection for all base personnel, residents and assets.
