World Wide Review 

The C-130 Technical Coordination Group (TCG) World Wide Review (WWR) is a USAF, Air Force International Affairs (SAF/IA), Air Force Security Assistance Center (AFSAC) sanctioned event that is held annually to assemble the C-130 Hercules community with the aim of sharing new technologies, experiences, improvements, brotherhood and ideas with the ultimate goal of continuing to operate and maintain the Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules aircraft safely and efficiently.  This event is held to support our Foreign Military Sales (FMS) country partners.  Each year our FMS customers are sent invitations to attend this event.

The WWR offers commercial vendors an opportunity to display their most current capabilities and improvements in one location to an audience of foreign partner nation’s operators and maintainers as well as Department of Defense International Acquisition professionals.  The event also shares USAF C-130 System Program Office current projects and concerns which are ongoing in the USAF C-130 fleet.  Live presentations are delivered by USAF C-130 engineers and project officers, who also offer question and answer sessions.

A gathering of over 150 commercial vendors in attendance and over 30 partner nations represented to exchange issues, concerns and ideas for improvements to the C-130.  Formal briefings are a mainstay to the event as well as hours afforded for leisurely roaming through the vendor exhibits on display in the event hall ballrooms.  For a more intimate exchange of ideas; side bar meetings are encouraged and venues for conducting these meetings are always available at the location.

The C-130 TCG has now been operating for 37 years.  Since the inception of the C-130 TCG in 1987 we have held 33 World Wide Reviews.  Only 3 World Wide Reviews were not held due to the World Wide Review being formed later, government furlough, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2024 C-130 TCG 34th World Wide Review is scheduled to take place in Orlando, Flordia, USA at the Caribe Royale on 28 October - 1 November, 2024.  Registration to this event is NOW OPEN!
