|Military Space A Travel FAQ|
|6. Sources of Information|
|6.1) Where can I find out more? |
The best source of up to date information is a passenger terminal. The personnel assigned there should be able to answer most of your questions about regulations and schedules. To get some advice on how to plan a trip you can try siting in the snack bar and talking to some of the "regulars" there. There are many retirees who catch hops for months at a time and can tell you stories about their Space A travels and some of the best places to go! There are also some excellent guidebooks available that have been written by seasoned Space A travelers.
6.2) What's the best guidebook to get?
6.3) Where can I find more Space-A information on the Internet?
On the Space A World Wide Web home page you will find the relevant portions of DoD Regulation 4515.13-R and COMDTINST M3710.1C, extensive how-to information, a listing of every facility with permanently stationed fixed wing aircraft that can carry Space A passengers, some lists of phone numbers, reviews of the best known guidebooks, news articles about Space A, the latest version of this FAQ, links to every other known Space A resource, and a wealth of related information. Just point your World Wide Web browser to <http://www.glue.umd.edu/~oard/spacea/>. Dirk Peppard runs a fairly active web chat page that is available from the Space A web page. Another source of Space A information on the Internet is Usenet News. The newsgroup <news:soc.veterans> is full of people with Space A experience, and that newsgroup is available on most systems. Another newsgroup with a more active discussion (but a somewhat less experienced membership) is <news:alt.military.cadet>. Your system may not carry that group, however, since many systems do not subscribe to the "alt" hierarchy. One thing that you should NOT do is send me (Doug Oard) a question about how to get somewhere. I maintain this page in my spare time, and there's not nearly enough of that! So I routinely refer such questions to the resources listed above.
