Step 1: The flyover request and approval process are managed by first visiting the Air Force Public Affairs Air Force Aerial Events Website at www.airshows.pa.hq.af.mil. You must submit requests, track the status of your request, and receive notification of approval or denial at this site. The site also outlines eligibility for support.
Step 2: Once your request with SAF/PA is submitted, print your DD Form 2535, send to your local FAA for signature and send back to SAF/PA with all pages complete. SAF/PA cannot process a request that has not been submitted online or without FAA coordination.
Once a flyover request is approved by SAF/PA, you will receive notification and an approval number. Once this number is issued, it is the requester’s responsibility to secure a unit to support your event.
SAF/PA approval could take up to 14 days.
Step 3: Notify Fairchild AFB of your approval and intent to request our aircraft to support at least 45 days prior to your event by completing our form here.
