AIRCRAFT INVENTORY MASTER GUIDE
This is a list of those items of installed or loose
equipment required by and authorized for using
organizations to accomplish their primary or alternate
mission. This list will serve to standardize present
inventory procedures by using the inventory master
guide to determine the inventoriable items of installed
and loose equipment. Insofar as possible, items of
equipment are listed in the sequence of their physical
location within the aircraft area.

Aircraft inventory is subject to change as a result
of authorized changes and additions or deletions of
property for special missions requirements; therefore,
the selection of items of inventory from the inventory
master guide may or may not provide a complete
inventory list. When it is known that the master guide
does not provide a complete inventory list, it will be
necessary to research authorized changes and local
command directives in order to compile an accurate and
exact inventory list.

accordance with existing security regulations.
