Military Support, DD2535 Deadline Quickly Approaching

June 10th, 2024

As a reminder, the deadline for submitting requests for U.S. military support is Friday, June 28 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. 


Air shows requesting the support of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds or U.S. Navy Blue Angels in 2026 and air shows requesting single-ship demo support from the U.S. Air Force or U.S. Marine Corps in 2025 must submit their DD Form 2535 not later than Friday, June 28.


ICAS expects the 2026 Thunderbirds and Blue Angels schedules and the 2025 U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, Canadian Forces Snowbirds and CF-18 Hornet demo schedules to be released on the morning of Tuesday, December 10 during the 2024 ICAS Convention in Las Vegas.


Remember that, in the U.S., an air show is obligated to receive a sign-off from its local FAA Flight Standards inspector before submitting the DD Form 2535. So, although there’s still time, it’s a checklist item that deserves your immediate attention.
