While air show planning for 2023 and beyond continues to gain significant momentum, air shows are reminded that the deadline for submitting requests for U.S. military support is quickly approaching at the end of next month.
Air shows requesting the support of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds or U.S. Navy Blue Angels in 2024 and air shows requesting single-ship demo support from the U.S. Air Force or U.S. Marine Corps in 2023 must submit their DD Form 2535 not later than Friday, July 1.
ICAS expects that the 2024 Thunderbirds and Blue Angels schedules and the 2023 U.S. Air Force single-ship demo, U.S. Marine Corps Harrier and Osprey, Canadian Forces Snowbirds and CF-18 Hornet demo schedules to be released during the opening general session at the ICAS Convention in Las Vegas.
So, air shows interested in inviting the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds to their shows in 2024 must submit their DD Form 2535 to the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force, respectively, before July 1. Air shows interested in hosting the A-10, F-16, F-35, F-22, Harrier, or Osprey demos in 2023 must also submit their requests by July 1.
