AF Form 1800, Operator's Inspection Guide and Trouble Report is a document used by Ground Transportation Support Operators to conduct pre-, during, and post-operation inspections on vehicles, take corrective actions or notify the Ground Transportation Operations Center when appropriate. The form is used with all registered vehicles and vehicular equipment except refueling vehicles and fuels support equipment.
Unit Vehicle Training and Vehicle Control Officials train and license the minimum number of AF (military and civilian) employees to operate, inspect and care for the Air Force vehicles to complete the mission. The operators record any discrepancies found during the inspections which require maintenance in the "Vehicle/Equipment Discrepancy and Maintenance Report" section of the appropriate Operator's Inspection Guide and Trouble Report form and report them to Vehicle Management. When an operator reports discrepancies in any of the safety-type systems or devices, that could adversely affect the safety of personnel or the operation of equipment, that maintenance is not delayed and the vehicle or vehicular equipment item will not be continued in service.
The latest version of the form was released by the Air Force (AF) in April 2010 with all previous editions obsolete. An up-to-date printable AF Form 1800 is available for download below or can be found through the Air Force e-Publishing website. Additional information and filing guidelines can be found in AFI 24-301, Vehicle Operations.
