If approved, Italian Base Ops will issue a PPR number with clearance to the U.S. Navy ramp (MA2).
To grant assistance U.S. Base Operations may issue a U.S. Parking Ramp Number or PAX/CARGO authorization.
All foreign aircraft remaining overnight shall park on the Italian Air Force ramp (MA1).
If cleared to land and park on a military ramp, Italian Base Ops will forward to the originator a message or fax which will include the Italian PPR as well as Parking Ramp Number (MA1 or MA2).
The U.S. Parking Ramp Number or the PAX/CARGO authorization does not constitute authorization to land/park, but will only ensure assistance provided by the U.S. Navy.
