Turn-In Instructions

DLA Disposition Services sites will not screen or report aircraft. The Military Department will report flyable aircraft to General Services Administration (GSA), Region 9 (Pacific Rim Region).

This policy applies to all aircraft; however, processing procedures may vary for aircraft located at the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG).

For aircraft, the DoD Components will:

  • Screen with other DoD-sponsored activities to determine needs for complete aircraft. Screening will be in a form agreeable to the Services and other DoD activities

  • Report excess aircraft to GSA on Standard Form (SF) 120, “Report of Excess Personal Property,” (available on the Internet at for federal and donation screening in accordance with part 102 of Reference (e). The SF 120 will list all major systems (such as engines and electronics) missing from the aircraft at the time of reporting. The report will also indicate whether the data plate, logbooks, and historical and modification records are available, and if additional parts will be removed from the aircraft at the time of release to the transferee. Data plates for aircraft transferred or donated for non-flight purposes will be removed prior to issue.

  • DoD Components will make all foreign excess personal property (FEPP) aircraft available for screening by GSA-approved federal or State representatives for possible return to the United States for federal transfer or donation. OCONUS DLA Disposition Services sites that receive aircraft will, regardless of condition, report such aircraft to the DLA Disposition Services Forward Support Team (FST) Operations Europe or FST Central Command, depending on the area of responsibility for disposition.
