DA Form 759 Individual Flight Record and Flight Crew Certificate-Army (Flight Hours)
What Is DA Form 759?
DA Form 759, Individual Flight Record and Flight Crew Certificate - Army (Flight Hours) is a form used to close out flight records and is required for all soldiers on flight status. The form is generated by Centralized Aviation Flight Records System (CAFRS) for each soldier on flying status when closing their records.
The latest version of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 759 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) in July 2018 with all previous editions being obsolete. An up-to-date DA Form 759 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website.
The DA Form 759 has to be digitally signed by the soldier's aircrew training program (ATP) commander in CAFRS in order to be valid. The form is signed and dated by a certifying officer if the ATP commander is not the one who authorized flight duties on the DA Form 7120 (Commander's Task List).
