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  Aerial Support Request Form DD2535.

Thank you for your interest in military support for your event. We take pride in supporting our local communities and hope to be able to promote the positive attributes of military service at your event.

If you don't find the answers you need here, or you have other questions, please call the Connecticut National Guard Directorate of Military Support.
