INSTRUCTIONS
1. The attached form is used to request U.S. Armed Forces aircraft participation at
2. The event sponsor is responsible for gaining the completion of Section IV, FAA
Coordination, prior to submission of the form to each appropriate Military Service. The
local Flight Standards District Office that has jurisdiction over the event site will
complete all appropriate blocks in Section IV. Requests for static displays only do not
require FAA coordination. Complete Sections I - III and V - VII, and forward the form
to the nearest Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) for completion of Section IV.
To locate nearest FSDO, visit FAA's website at http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/
field_offices/fsdo/
3.
The local sponsoring organization is responsible for the accurate completion of the
form and c
onducting the event. The information on this form
must be typed or
printed
in ink, and is used to evaluate the event for compliance with public law and
Department of Defense policies, and to determine its eligibility for Armed Forces
participation. In all cases, military particip
ation must not interfere with military
operations and
training
programs,
and must be at no
additional cost to the U.S.
Government. Sponsors will consult with local military recruiters and provide, at no
charge, prime space at
the event site
for
recruiting activities. Department of Defense
is unable to
support events for which sponsorship is intended to make a business
profit. Events which have an admission charge, or other associated
charges, do
not
necessarily preclude military participation. Military commands cannot participate in
events which charge admission unless the military participation is incidental to the
event, and not the primary attraction. Incomplete forms, or forms submitted late,
cannot be considered and will be returned to the sponsor's representative.
4.
Flyover requests will be considered
for aviation-oriented events (i.e., air
shows, airport anniversaries or dedication events), or for patriotic observances (one
day only) held in conjunction with Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Independence
Day, POW/MIA Recognition Day, or Veterans Day (event must be within seven days
of the actual holiday date to be considered). Flyovers are limited to four aircraft of a
similar type from the same Military Service, and may be performed by operational or
training aircraft as determined by the providing Military Service. Sponsors of events
other than bona fide air shows are prohibited from scheduling more than one
one Service to conduct the flyover. Once a m ilitary organization confirms
flyover support, sponsor must then notify any other military service
requested,so they will not participate in the same event. The Blue Angels and
Thunderbirds generally do not perform flyovers. Requests for flyovers must be
received for processing at least 60 days prior to the event for full consideration by
the Services. Requests received closer than 30 days will not allow adequate
planning for some organizations to support. Requests received 14 days or closer
will not be considered. Complete Sections I - III and V - VII, and forward the form to
the nearest Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) for completion of Section IV.
The Missing Man Formation is generally reserved for select national military
observances that are solemn and commermorative in nature or for funeral services
in honor of active duty rated/designated aviators or dignitaries of the Federal
Government or as determined by the Military Services. For more information about
Missing Man Formations in support of rated military funeral services, please visit:
https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/mfh/getLinks.do?tab=Fly.
5.
Requests for aircraft static displays will only be considered for air shows, airport
events, expositions and fairs, and public events which contribute to the public
knowledge of Armed Forces equipment and capabilities (including recruiting and
ROTC events). Complete Sections I - III and V - VII (Section IV is not applicable
when requesting static displays only). Requests may be sent from the sponsoring
organization to each Service branch's public affairs office listed in paragraph 9 of
these instructions. The sponsor must satisfy all safety and operational requirements
for the requested aircraft. Requests received closer than 60 days (90 days for
Marine Corps support) will not allow adequate planning for some organizations to
support.
6.
Civilian-sponsored requests for performances by a flight demonstration team
(Blue Angels and Thunderbirds) will be considered only for events which are: (1)
aviation oriented (e.g., air shows, airport events, historical aviation events); (2)
planning civilian aviation participation; (3) open to all Military Services for
participation, and (4) held during the air show season (mid-March to
mid-November). A partial reimbursement cost (quarters and meals) of $6,000 per
official demonstration (including any performance where admission is
6. (Continued) charged to view a team) is payable by all nonmilitary sponsors as indicated
in the team support manual. Appearances on a military installation or sponsored by a
military organization will only be approved in support of an official installation "open house"
program (no admission charge/entrance fee). All event sponsors are required to comply
with all aspects of the team support manual, as applicable. Requests for the U.S. Air Force
Thunderbirds must be received by July 1 of the year preceding the year of the event. Please
note: the Thunderbirds operate on a 2-year schedule. Requests for the U.S. Navy Blue
Angels and Thunderbirds must be received by July 1 of the year that is two years preceding
the year of the event. Complete Sections I - III and V - VII, and forward the form to the
nearest FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) for completion of Section IV.
The annual schedule will be released in December of the year prior to the season.
Subsequent to public release of the schedules, teams will be rescheduled if a scheduled
event is cancelled, the original sponsoring organization is changed, or the original
event site is changed. Previously validated requests will automatically be reconsidered.
NOTE: Blue Angels and Thunderbirds require 6,000 and 7,000 foot runways,
respectively, at or within 30-50 nautical miles of the demonstration site. The Blue Angels
also require arresting gear located within 80 nautical miles of the demonstration site.
7. Requests for single aircraft demonstrations (e.g., F-22, F-18, Harrier) will be
8. Civilian-sponsored requests for the U.S. Army Parachute Team, The "Golden Knights",
are considered for events open to the public such as air shows, sporting events, fairs, and
other outdoor events that help connect the public with America's Army and enhance the U.S.
Army's marketing and engagement efforts. Appearances on military installations are only
approved in support of official "open house" programs. All sponsors, military and civilian,
must provide vehicles, hotel rooms, and a daily show fee. The show fee must be received
60 days before the event or it will be cancelled. Contact the Golden Knights for the current
year's support manual which includes the most up-to-date information on support require-
ments and current show fee. The Golden Knights' show schedule is released in mid-
January approximately 30 days after the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS)
convention. After the official schedule is released, the Golden Knights consider additional
performances if the event is requested at least 60 days prior to the event and there is a team
available. In the event of a cancellation,
previously submitted requests are automatically
considered. The show sponsor completes Section I, II, III, V, and VII of this form and
forwards the form to the nearest FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO) for completion
of Section IV. Please send the completed form to the contact listed below.
