PRAAPS – Pilot Reports of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Service – Reporting Form

Please take your time to complete this form as fully as possible. The more detail you can provide, the more useful the account becomes. Before you begin, you might find it helpful to review the five observables as described at the foot of this page.

The rationale and explanation of the purpose of this form can be found on this page.

Discretion is assured. The aim is to collect the data about the sighting, not to identify anyone who doesn’t want to be identified. The form is designed to collect the salient points about the sighting, not to idenfity the witness(es). If you wish to include some means of contacting you for any reason you are free to do so. If you do add any contact information, those details will be kept securely and will not be passed on to any third parties.

The Five Observables

The five observables describe UAP characteristics that are not consistent with known aviation and aerospace technology. They suggest the presence of advanced technology that is beyond our current understanding, and have been used to inform the development of UAP research programs such as the US government’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF – formed in 2020) and the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) – formed in 2022).

  1. Acceleration: UAP have been observed to exhibit sudden and extreme acceleration without any visible means of propulsion. They can move from a standstill to hypersonic speeds in a matter of seconds, which would generate tremendous G-forces on human pilots.
  2. Hypersonic velocities: UAP have been observed to move at hypersonic speeds, meaning speeds that are five times or more than the speed of sound. These speeds would generate temperatures and pressures that would be impossible for conventional aircraft to withstand.
  3. Low observability: UAP have been observed to be able to operate in airspace without being detected by radar or other detection systems. They have also been observed to have low radar cross-sections, which means they reflect very little radar energy and are difficult to detect.
  4. Trans-medium travel: UAP have been observed to be able to move through different mediums, such as air, water, and space, with apparent ease. This would require advanced technology that can withstand extreme conditions and adapt to different environments.
  5. Anti-gravity lift: UAP have been observed to be able to hover or fly without any visible means of lift or propulsion, which would require a technology that can counteract the force of gravity.
