The normal aerial event season runs from mid-February through mid-November. Training and certification schedules hinder support from December through February.
The ACC Aerial Events office schedules the ACC F-22 Demonstration Team for aircraft demonstrations and Heritage Flights. In addition, the office also schedules the A-10, F-4, and F-16 for Heritage Flights.
The Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation schedules all civilian warbirds (A-1, A-36, P-38, P-40, P-47, P-51, and F-86) for Heritage Flights. A Request Form for the Heritage Flight performance is located at http://www.airforceheritageflight.org/schedule
Requests for ACC aircraft static
displays or flyovers
should be sent to individual flying units. Hint: Use the "Find an Aircraft" icon on the SAF/PA web site
Event Sponsors - please
run the Event Sponsors checklist
The scheduling process begins by the event sponsor obtaining event approval from the Secretary of the Air Force for Public Affairs (SAF/PA)
website. This is accomplished by submission of a DD Form 2535 to SAF/PA (obtained on the SAF/PA website).
The event seeking approval must have aerial significance and be at no cost to the government. Events on DoD facilities are not required to submit a DD Form 2535 but are encouraged to do so as it increases AF unit awareness of your event.
Once approved by SAF/PA the event is eligible for support; however, this does not guarantee support. A flying unit must be approved by ACC to support your event.
