The 10th Troop Carrier Group is an inactive United States Air Force unit. It was last assigned to the Troop Carrier Command, based at Alliance Army Airfield, Nebraska. It was inactivated on 14 April 1944.

The 10th Troop Carrier Group was a descendant organization of the 1st Transport Group, one of the 13 original combat air groups formed by the Army before World War II. The group transported supplies, materiel, and personnel within the US. Later, trained cadres for troop carrier groups and in 1943 was given the additional duty of training replacement crews. The unit was inactivated in 1944 when the need for training transport personnel was decreased.
