CFWP Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I schedule a MILAIR lift?
a. Please fill out a DD2768. Below is a copy of a blank DD2768 provided along with a
sample and instructions. Please refer to the provided guidance before emailing or calling
with any questions; otherwise, we will refer you to the documents below.

c. In general, CFWP can only accept requests from Navy or Marine Corps commands. If the
request is to support U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force commands, or foreign militaries, then
additional information will be required to determine whether CFWP can accept the

2. Required timeline to submit DD2768?
a. Intra-Japan lift does not require a Dip Clearance request. Please submit request 10-14
Days out for scheduling.
b. Other international requests require us to adhere to Foreign Clearance Guide (FCG)
Aircraft Entry Lead Times. Refer to FCG for specific lead times.
c. CFWP requires an additional 3 business days added to FCG lead times in order to
validate and process the request. I.E. Singapore requires 14 Days + 3 Days to allow CFWP
to submit a complete APACs request. However, a flight to Singapore requires overflight
of Malaysia which has a 21 day lead time requirement. As a result the requester must submit
their request to Singapore 24 days prior to the requested departure date.

3. Can foreign nationals fly MILAIR?
a. Foreign nationals can embark on U.S. military aircraft with proper approval. This
requires a request from your command in a naval message to CFWP which will then be
reviewed, endorsed, and sent to 7th Fleet through CTF-73 for final review and approval.
This process takes at least 7 days to complete -- depending on the nature of the request.
b. Additional Rules apply:
    i. What if the primary purpose of the potential airlift request to move foreign
       Distinguished Visitor (DV) personnel? If the primary purpose of the request is
       to move the foreign DV personnel, then we cannot accept the request. In
       general, movement of any foreign personnel or their cargo would be only if
       there is excess capacity on an already validated and scheduled lift. Where we
       have embarked foreign personnel in the past is for translators and other foreign
       personnel in the employ of the USG or supporting US interests. The validation
       and scheduling of the lift is made solely on the U.S. military requirement.
    ii. Who are the DVs and what is their nationality?

4. Can other services utilize MILAIR services?
a. Other services may utilize C-130 and C-40 assets as a secondary use. If CFWP already has
a lift scheduled for location being requested then other branches may be scheduled on
the remaining space.
b. If the Primary Navy lift is cancelled, the other branch of service lift will be cancelled as

5. How do I schedule SPACE-A passengers?
a. You cannot schedule SPACE-A passengers.
b. SPACE-A passengers go through the air terminal and are based on their priority code
and seats available.
c. Please refer to the specific air terminal for any information regarding Space-A.

6. Can civilian contractors fly MILAIR?
a. If it is written in their contract, they are allowed to utilize MILAIR. It is the responsibility
of the requesting unit to verify the details of the contract. CFWP requires a memo from
the sponsoring command verifying that the contractors are authorized use of MILAIR.

7. How do I determine whether a contractor is authorized use of military airlift (MILAIR)?
a. Contact the contracting officer or contracting officer’s representative to determine if a
specific contractor is authorized use of MILAIR.

8. The airfield I want to go to does not have a current NCIS airfield assessment (AA) for ATFP.
Can I still get a lift scheduled to the airfield?

a. If there is no airfield assessment (AA) or if the AA has expired, a force protection (FP)
waiver is required from PACFLT.
b. The waiver request is the responsibility of the requesting CTF/unit and should be
initiated with CTF-73 prior to or in conjunction with submitting the lift request to CFWP.
c. CTF-73 will facilitate the forwarding of the request to PACFLT for approval.
d. Force Protection (FP) waivers are approved by CPF N00 and are not guaranteed.
e. Add a minimum of 14 days to the FCG Dip Clearance lead times in order to provide time
to process the FP waiver request. CFWP cannot make plans to support a lift without an
approved FP waiver.

9. The airfield I want to go to is a CAT B airfield. Can I still get a lift scheduled to the airfield?
a. Per PACFLT, all CAT B airfields require U.S. armed security augmentation. FASTPAC
provides armed security to satisfy this requirement.
P 182215Z FEB 22

b. FASTPAC requires 90 days lead time for security team requests. 7 th Fleet has additional
guidance for requesting security teams.
c. When a request is made to a CAT B airfield, CFWP will request FASTPAC support through

d. CFWP will be unable to submit an APACS request until FASTPAC provides details of their
supporting team. This can lead to significant increases in the lead time required
depending on the country being requested and the availability of FASTPAC. Please
consider this when submitting your initial request.
e. Not all countries allow for FASTPAC teams to be present. Please refer to the Foreign
Clearance Guide for the most current information.
f. CFWP cannot post a list of all Cat B airfields.

10. Can you reconfigure aircraft to provide Distinguished Visitors (DV) services?
a. CFWP aircraft are not DV aircraft. CFWP does not provide executive or DV services. We
do not have nor can we reconfigure our aircraft to some sort of DV or executive
configuration. Additionally, we do not provide any additional or special services like
special meals or catering for any personnel that are considered DVs.
