Flyover Request Checklist

How do I request a Flyover or Static Display?

**Please note that due to budget constraints, as of 14 January, the Air Force has been directed not to provide fly-overs until further notice.

To have your patriotic holiday observance or aviation-related event, such as an air show, considered for fly-over or static display support, please follow these steps:

In order for us to consider your event, you must first gain Pentagon approval by going to the Air Force aerial events website. Follow the steps online to complete a DD Form 2535, Request for Aerial Support.

With your portion of the form completed and printed out, please fax your request to the appropriate FAA Flight Standards District Office for air space approval. Here are some common numbers that may help you:

Portland FSDO

3180 NW 229th Avenue
Hillsboro, OR 97124
(503) 615-3200

(Not sure which FSDO serves your area? Click here.)

Once you have your completed form with FAA approval, you are now ready to submit your request to the Pentagon for approval. Fax your completed form to (703) 693-9601.

Once you have received a SAF-PAN approval number, you may contact the 142d Fighter Wing Public Affairs office to request support of your event. Please include all pertinent information including Name, event, location, date and time of event, and approval number.

Public Affairs will guide you through the remainder of the process. It is important to keep in mind that although you have received Pentagon approval, ultimate participation approval is determined by 142d Fighter Wing leadership based on available resources, community relations impact, support in past years and other factors.

It is important to begin your request at least 60 days in advance of your scheduled event in order to allow enough time for all the coordination to be made. No requests submitted within 14 days of your event will be considered.
