The I Troop Carrier Command (I TCC) is an inactive United States Air Force unit. Its last assignment was with the First Air Force, based at Stout Army Air Field, Indiana.

Its primary mission was theater troop and logistics transport training. Equipped largely with C-47 Skytrain and later C-46 Commando aircraft, its wings acted as training organization in the United States during World War II, the component groups were then reassigned to deployed overseas Numbered Air Forces worldwide. As a result of the Army Air Forces reorganization after World War II, the Troop Carrier mission was reassigned to the new major commands, and Troop Carrier Command was inactivated on 4 November 1945.
