Then fill in your details, select departure airfields and destination countries, and 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.

• Complies with Air Mobility Command rules: Signups generated by you, your e-mail as the sender & 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).
• NEW: Now includes optional fields for DoD ID numbers, dates of birth, and passport info.
• Full control of your data--ability to purge anytime.
"My mom came to visit me and she used the app, too (...) Its great for anyone visiting [the base]." - LT

"Great app. Very easy to use" - TT
Policies governing space-a 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 http://www.amc.af.mil/amctravel for current official AMC policy. Utilize and support pepperd.com, spacea.net & takeahop.org for unofficial discussions, info, and desktop-based space-a signup.
Only after 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.

Pros and cons of MilSpaceA app for iPhone and iPad
MilSpaceA app good for
Great application, anyone that gave this app less than 5 stars must just not know how to us a smartphone. It provides great details on numerous AMC terminals for space A travel. I currently serve in the Army and have used this app many times for me and my family.
I have been contacted by Rob G and was advised to simply uninstall and reinstall the app. It now works nearly flawlessly. Just a minor issue with it jumping down 2 or 3 lines when hitting tab when it should ideally jump to the next line for the next entry but that is way minor. Also it did not produce a passbook due to a server error but thats not at all a big deal. The biggest plus is that it saves all my data even when I exit the app which means no more having to enter the same data over and over. Is that cool or what? Also, since all the updates that I have not been on top of since I quit using Take-a-Hop the available info for almost all AMC stations is awesome. It even has the AMC Grams loaded. Its like I got all the AMC stations right in my iPad. Very handy. So please disregard the old post because so far this app is a 5-star rating. Thanks Rob G and my apologies for the rant earlier on.
My previous post read:
Does not work at all. Just sits and stares at me. Some items can be entered others cannot. Unable to enter countries of destination and sometimes it just crashes. I am using this on an iPad Pro, the latest model and it does not work. Many of the e-mails embedded into take-a-hop are not updated and bases are not receiving the e-mails. Deleted it and will go back to just sending raw e-mails, that way I know Im signing up for Space "A". Not ready for Prime Time.
This app is worth every penny and more. Great upgrade and very user friendly. A go to resource for every space a traveler. My go to source to sign up for flights.
This is an essential app for space aing. I sign up at a lot of bases because I dont know where I am going. This app makes that simple. Great database of lodging phone numbers and maps. The app has saved me time, trouble, and money.
Great app for anyone using military space a. Loads of useful info on bases-maps, lodging, dining options, along with phone numbers and links, and more. Signing up to fly from multiple bases couldnt be simpler. Easy to use and I highly recommend it as an essential tool.
Anyone in the uniformed services and eligible for space-a should be using this app!!! Its awesomely still a one-time price, not a subscription. I got it about 4 years ago and never had to pay again. It gets updated inside like every week with new info without an app store update and then sometimes the outside is updated, too. I talked to the guy doing it, Rob, about 6 months ago and he told me everyones telling him to change it to a subscription. Youll kick yourself if he ever does that!
So, about the app. It simplifies the space available signup process and puts darn near everything in one simple place.
All of the AMCGRAMS, aircraft seating info (where it might stink on some planes), weather conditions, lodging, travel alerts, links for terminal FB pages, tips on rides. All the stuff you need and a lot that makes things easier. And phone numbers and locations for places AMC doesnt keep up to date.
Is it worth it? Every single penny.
Some bad moments
It allowed me to easily sign up for multiple flights simultaneously. The free update has very useful facilities and location information. It is great to finally have all of this in one place. Well done!
I plan on trying to SpaceA around the country this summer, and having all the SpaceA information at my finger tips is great. Last year, I spent a lot of time locating the Space A number for different bases, sending the emails, then trying to find numbers and types of local transportation. This app has all that information located on my iPhone and iPad. Thanks for making traveling a little easier!
This app has great info for anyone traveling Space A - from the rookie to the seasoned traveler.
Excellent!!.. A must have App for all military Space A Travelers. It does what its intended for plus more. Superbly created! I love it!
This is an awesome tool. Thanks for looking after the travelers!
It only shows Travis as an AOR...cannot see SEATAC info...please fix!!!!!
