# Can military personnel land their own private aircraft at military bases?

First off, I am asking similar, but logistically different question to What process do I follow to land a civilian aircraft on a military base?

If I am in the US Military (with a valid ID), am I free to land my personal (civilian style) airplane (with my civilian licence) at military bases - in the same sense that I could drive my car on?

• I imagine the answer would be identical to the other question, except that instead of going directly to the base commander you'd submit your request through the chain of command, and special arrangements may be made so you don't have to notify the base commander 24 hours in advance of every intended landing... – voretaq7 Oct 14 '14 at 21:39
• 32 CFR 855, Table 1 (linked in the answer) seems to indicate Service members, operating their own aircraft, leased aircraft, or other available aircraft for official duty travel (temporary duty, permanent change of station, etc.) or for private, non revenue flights are eligible for landing rights. It looks like they still need to file the paperwork, and with a few exceptions the request can be approved locally (at the base level). – voretaq7 Oct 14 '14 at 21:51
• You know, @voretaq7, if you want to put that into an answer. It's definitely worthy. – Keegan Oct 15 '14 at 5:39
• I always tell passengers, when they ask if we can land at KNKX as we fly over it, that we can land anywhere you want to... once! – Canuk Oct 15 '14 at 6:31
• @jwenting in THAT particular case, it wouldn't have helped since the shooter was a person that was assigned to that base. – Larian LeQuella Oct 20 '14 at 11:32
