1. How do I submit a completed application?
Please email PDFs of all required forms to CALP@navy.mil. PDF applications are now the accepted method of submittal to streamline the reviewing process. Mailing hard copy originals is no longer required; however, applications still require blue ink signatures. Therefore, PDFs must be in color. Due to the large number of applications received, please allow 30 days for review and process. A correctly filled application will take much less time.
*PLEASE NOTE: If you will be submitting applications for multiple airshows, please notify the CALP Manager (found under the Points of Contact on the Home Page).
2. How do I add aircraft to my existing landing permit?
Complete the “Additional Aircraft Data Form” found under the Getting Started tab. Provide a new, blue ink signature DD Form 2400 proving the additional aircraft are insured (an alternative is to send a copy of the existing insurance DD Form 2400, IF it has the statement in Block 4.e "All aircraft owned and operated by the insured"). Email this documentation to CALP@navy.mil, and a new permit that includes the additional aircraft will be emailed back to you.
3. How do I add an air station to my existing landing permit?
If you are a contractor, you must provide verification that the new air station is supported by the contract. The user may have the government contracting officer send a letter (see ‘Sample COR Letter’ on the Getting Started tab) stating that the new air station is needed to support the contract. If the contracting officer desires, we will accept his/her e-mail from a .gov or .mil address in lieu of the COR letter. If you are a private individual or active duty military, you may simply email CALP@navy.mil with your request and state the purpose of use.
4. How do I change my company name on the permit?
You must submit all new forms with the new name. It is imperative that the “User” on the DD Form 2401 and 2402 match the “Insured” on the DD Form 2400.
5. How long does it take to receive my landing permit after application submittal?
Due to the large volume of applications received, you should allow 30 days for processing, verification, and approval before the proposed landing date. If an application is completed correctly, it can be reviewed and processed much more quickly. While it is understood that urgent situations do arise, it is best practice to email the completed application to CALP@navy.mil as soon as possible to ensure a CALP is processed prior to an aircraft’s first intended landing.
*PLEASE NOTE: application packages are reviewed during the workweek. Applications received after 1500 on Fridays will not be reviewed and processed until the following Monday.
6. How long will my permit remain active?
The CALP will expire when the insurance policy expires OR when the contract under which the CALP was approved expires. The date that expires first is the date that will be used (i.e., if the insurance policy expires before the contract, then the CALP expires when the insurance policy expires, and a new one will be approved after proof of updated insurance is provided to allow continued aviation facility use through the contract). This is to ensure that all aircraft listed on a DD Form 2401 have current and adequate insurance coverage, and any aircraft without active insurance policy coverage cannot be on a CALP. Therefore, it is best practice to have all aircraft listed on a DD Form 2401 with the same insurance coverage (or policies that end on the same date).
7. My landing permit is expiring. How do I renew it, and how many copies should I send?
You must re-apply. See the Getting Started section for individual or corporation applications. Please email only one (1) copy of the completed application package.
8. Are members of a Navy Flying Club able to obtain landing permits?
Yes, if there is an acceptable reason for needing to land. Flying club members are only allowed to land at air stations where they are a member. The Flying Club Manager must endorse the permit.
9. Are Government employees able to obtain a landing permit?
Yes, but your reason to land must be for official government business. Per 32 C.F.R. Part 766, 766.2(g), “official business” is defined as: “Business, in the interest of the U.S. Government, which personnel aboard an aircraft must transact with U.S. Government organizations or personnel at or near the naval aviation facility concerned. Use of a facility to solicit U.S. Government business is not “official business.”” Your supervisor must endorse the DD Form 2401 confirming your need to land at Naval and Marine Corps air station.
10. What happens in the event of an inflight emergency?
Per 32 C.F.R. Part 766, 766.5 (i) regarding emergency landings: “Any aircraft may land at a Navy/Marine Corps aviation facility when necessary as a result of a bona fide emergency. However, whenever the nature of the emergency permits the pilot to select the time and place of landing, it is preferred that the pilot land his aircraft at a civil field.”
11. My company is a Limited Liability Company, General Partnership, or Limited Partnership. What documentation is required?
See the Getting Started tab, at the very bottom of the page. Samples of the required forms are located there for download.
