About this app

Have a Plan. Register. Have a Back Up Plan. Make Roll Call. Get Selected. Get Airborne.

Or search for and access Local Info--before you depart, just after arrival, anytime.

MilSpaceA app allows authorized U.S. government users to register for Department of Defense (DoD) military space-available travel. It is the exclusive app for all DoD travelers wanting a quick, easy, reliable, and authorized means to sign up for Space-A at primary departure terminals.

VISITING FAMILY MEMBERS and TDY military & contractors are now using MilSpaceA app as well--there's MUCH MORE here than just space-a signup.

Expanded LOCAL INFO: billeting, car rental, dining, BX/PX/NEX/MCX info, links to air terminals' pages, USOs & more.
AIRCRAFT GALLERY: depictions & basic descriptions of DoD pax aircraft
TRAVEL ADVISORIES - announcements of temporary conditions affecting space-a
SIGNUP ARCHIVE - stored in-app (as well as in user's own e-mail "Sent" items)
FOREIGN CURRENCY - daily exchange rates for AOIs
DOCUMENT LIBRARY: key space-a documents: policy, guides, handbooks, AMCGrams
ENHANCED ONLINE MAPPING: Your location relative to points of interest in the app (requires active geolocation & Internet access).

First, browse through "Airfields of Interest" so you can call ahead to various terminals (call-enabled; just tap the number). Or visit terminals’ flight schedule pages (if they have them--most don't) Then fill in your details, select departure airfields & destination countries & send out the signup to register for travel. Some terminals will reply; most will not. Just keep a copy of e-mail(s) as proof of signup

• Remote space-a registration for multiple airfields. Prepare signups off- or online--then transmit when you have connectivity
• Multi-branch terminal support (Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Guard & Reserve)
• Complies with Air Mobility Command rules: Signups generated by you, your e-mail as the sender and reply-to address. Copies saved directly in your e-mail Sent items, retrievable anytime
• Data privacy: No SSAN required. Exclusive AMC-authorized Pseudo Person ID (PPID) auto-created. (Some Navy locations still insist on SSANs--contact them directly after signup to pass SSAN). (Some Navy locations still insist on SSANs--contact them directly after signup to pass SSAN)
• Full control of your data, ability to purge anytime

Policies governing space-a travel are implemented in DoD Directive 4515.13-R (Air Transportation Eligibility) and AMCI 24-101 Vol 14. Determine your eligibility before registering for travel. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL TERMINAL if you have any questions of eligibility. Refer to for current official AMC policy. Utilize and support, & for unofficial discussions, info, and desktop-based space-a signup.

Only after military mission requirements are met will remaining seats be offered up for space-a. Be prepared for delays or short-notice diversions. Space-A is a privilege, not a right--movement is never guaranteed. UNDERSTAND THE BASICS OF SPACE-A before signing up.

I have used this app for almost 10 years now, and it is a wonderful experience. The only issue is that not all bases receive emails, and I have to show my app archive to prove my sign up date. Unfortunately, I was told I had to sign up at the moment once in Norfolk because they did not have an official email in their system. I missed the opportunity to fly That day as a result. How Can this be avoided in the future???

For me, and perhaps others, the most critical piece of information this app can provide is quick and easy access to current 72 and 24 hour deparure schedules. I've now tried a half dozen of the busiest AMC Terminals and no luck. The links are incorrect or get you to a page where you have to dig for the schedules or yet another link to them. Thanks for the static installation information...for that you deserve credit, but we really need those schedules!

I know it is only a few $$, but a complete waste of money - and time... and HUGE disappointment! Nearly 0 info that I wanted and expected. Mainly just phone numbers and how to sign up. I WANTED and NEED links to the lists of flights. THOUGHT this would be a 'one stop shop, for lack of better terms, that I could have access to actual flight info, but I have yet to find anything even close to that.
