Government Aircraft Data

Federal Aviation Interactive Reporting System (FAIRS)

FAIRS is a management information system operated by GSA to collect, maintain, analyze, and report information on Federal aircraft inventories and cost and usage of Federal aircraft and CAS aircraft (and related aviation services). Users access FAIRS through a highly-secure Web site. Executive agencies of the United States Government must report to FAIRS if they own, bail, borrow, loan, lease, rent, charter, contract for, or obtain by ISSA Government aircraft.

Note: The U.S. Armed Forces, to include the U.S. Coast Guard, and agencies included in the Intelligence community are exempt from the requirement to report information to GSA via FAIRS.

What type of information is reported to FAIRS?

  • Inventory data on Federal aircraft, including Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS),
  • Cost and utilization data on Federal aircraft, including Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS),
  • Cost and utilization data on Commercial Aviation Services (CAS) aircraft and related aviation services,
  • Accident and incident data (see § 102-33.445); and
  • The results of standard competition studies in compliance with OMB Circular A–76 that justify purchasing, leasing, modernizing replacing, or otherwise acquiring aircraft and related aviation services.

When should data be submitted to FAIRS?

  • Agencies must report any changes in their Federal aircraft inventory within 14 calendar days of those changes.
  • Agencies must also report cost and utilization data to FAIRS at the XLSX - 80.27 end of every quarter of the fiscal year (December 31, March 31, June 30 and September 30). However, agencies may also submit their information to FAIRS on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
