It generally takes 4-6 weeks to process an application, however the entire process (application to delivery) can take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks or longer depending on the space availability of aircraft headed to the desired destination.
Yes, it is possible. A single charity organization would have to assume all the application, processing and in-country acceptance responsibilities for the partner charity.
Only one shipment per organization can be processed at a time. With the completion of the After Action Report (AAR) a succeeding shipment can be initiated.
Yes, there can be, but only it relates to supporting processes such as material procurements, any required warehousing (at departure and arrival locations), ground transportation, customs duties, and distribution costs for an example. The actual military airlift is free.
Yes, but there may also be more than one OKF member providing assistance.
No, but it is recommended that whatever container is used to package that its construction is strong enough to allow for stacking and should also include materials protection from the possibility of the shipment being exposed to the environment during trans-shipment.
No, so long as you have access to a nearby military facility that supports military airlift cargo operations and can otherwise support your load preparation request. This will be determined by the Denton Program office. It's important to note that most military units (all service branches) must have the capability to prepare contingency assets for airlift abroad. U.S. Air Force aircraft can land at most civilian airports to affect the onload of your humanitarian cargo.
Generally not. Despite the fact that both C-130 and C-17 aircraft are capable of landing at such landing strips as such, there needs to be established security, airfield operations, and suitable manpower resources in place.
No. Passengers must have official U.S. Government clearance to ride aboard a military aircraft and must also have an official mission in order to travel to locations that may or may not have supporting passenger terminals.
