Does the Policy or Rules for Space-A ever change?

Space-A policy and rules are constantly being evaluated and have evolved over the years. I try very hard to keep abreast of changes and constantly update the SpaceA.net FAQ and associated information.  Here's a list of changes that have occurred over the years:

  • Fees no longer required for departures from "military locations on military aircraft" (used to be $10 per person from more active locations such as Dover, McGuire, Ramstein)
  • No longer have to wear uniform while flying Space-A
  • Signup now can be done remotely
  • Advance schedules no longer available on public web sites
  • Aircraft types no longer available on public web sites
  • JOSAC/OSA schedules no longer available to public (restricted to .mil with account)
  • Roll Call "Schedule" now available on the internet
  • Roll Call Reports now available on internet
  • Command Sponsored Dependents allowed to Space-A unaccompanied
  • Non-Command Sponsored Dependents allowed to Space-A unaccompanied
  • Dependents with Deployed Sponsors allowed to Space-A unaccompanied (2007)
  • Dependents can accompany their sponsor within CONUS
  • Must be marked "Present" to take part in a Space-A Roll Call
  • Signup duration changed from 45 days to 60 days (AMC and some other locations)
  • Virtual Roll Call available for some missions at select locations
  • Command Sponsored Dependent and Non-Command Sponsored Dependents letters now valid for 90 days (versus 60)
  • Patriot Express monthly departure projections now posted on public web sites (2015)
  • Dependents with sponsors deployed 30 days or more (2015)
  • DoD Reg revised from 1994 version:  Signup duration listed as 60 days (2016)

These are just the ones that I can remember off the top of my head.
