DD Form 2402 Civil Aircraft Hold Harmless Agreement

What Is DD Form 2402?

DD Form 2402, Civil Aircraft Hold Harmless Agreement is a legal document that vouches for an official contract between the Department of Defense (DoD) and a person or company intending to use military airfield facilities. The DD 2402 is not a civil aircraft landing permit in and of itself and must be filed along with the DD Form 2400 and the DD Form 2401 to obtain one.

The latest valid version of the form was issued in January 2008 - a fillable up-to-date DD Form 2402 is available for download below.

By signing this paper, an individual or corporation confirm the obligation to hold all U.S. agencies and personnel harmless from any liabilities that may arise out of the use of military airfields, related equipment, and supplies. This includes any possible damage to a person or property unless the harm resulted from willful misconduct of U.S. Army personnel.

The DD 2402 is sometimes confused with DA Form 2402, Maintenance Tag - a newer version of the DA Form 2402, Exchange Tag. The DA 2402 is intended to serve as an identification tag and is used as a receipt for TMDE items needing calibration, to identify items held for warranty claims and EIR exhibits, etc. This form is not publicly available.

DD 2402 Related Forms

The Civil Aircraft Hold Harmless Agreement is a part of a set of three forms necessary to obtain a landing permit for military airfields. The can be filed digitally or hand-filed after printing and must be physically signed with blue ink before being mailed to the corresponding branch of the U.S. Army. Faxes or emails will not be reviewed for approval.

The DD Form 2400, Civil Aircraft Certificate of Insurance should be filled in and submitted by your insurance company. The duration of the whole permit basically depends on the duration of the insurance, though it cannot exceed one year from the application date.

The DD Form 2401, Civil Aircraft Landing Permit is a document that denotes the desire of a person or company to use a military airfield for civil aircraft landing. If approved, the permit does not entitle the aircraft to receive aviation fuel, oil, or other services from U.S. Army sources. A copy of the permit must be on hand of any civil aircraft on military airfield grounds.

Corporate entities must include a letter from the Contracting Officer's Representative that affirms the requirement to land with their application.

There are differences in policy between the Departments of the Army, Air Force, and Navy. A requested permit might be denied by Navy and Marine Corps air installations but be later approved by another service for their airfield grounds.
