Requesting a Flyover
Requests for military aircraft to fly over your special event can be made through the Connecticut National Guard Directorate of Military Support, the U.S. Air Force Aerial Events Support home page, or the U.S. Army Aerial Events homepage. A list of DoD-approved events may be found on either site. Some events may be approved at the local level. Event organizers should be aware that military aircraft flyover requests are subject to a number of restrictions and are supported only where they do not impact operational mission accomplishment.
To request a Connecticut National Guard Flyover, event organizers should submit a completed DD Form 2535 (Request for Military Aerial Support) (PDF).
Requests should be submitted 90 days prior to the event to be considered for support. Less than 90 days notice greatly reduces the chance that support will be available. Requests received 30 days or closer to the event will not be considered.
If you have other questions, or would like more information on military support of your community event, please call the Connecticut National Guard Directorate of Military Support at 860-493-2794.
