COMMUNITY RELATIONS

Community relations and outreach are two of the top priorities of the Nevada National Guard.

Community relations requests include: aviation flyovers and static displays, requests for military speakers, color guard requests and parade participation.
 
Military funeral honors are not considered community relations or outreach and are funded separately--see below for information on military funeral flyovers and or funeral honor guard requests.

FLYOVER AND STATIC DISPLAYS

Flyover and Static Display Requests: Fixed-wing aircraft (Airplanes) are requested through the Air Force Public Affairs Aerial Events Website:

The Flyover requests will need FAA approval (see below); however the Static Display requests do NOT require FAA approval.

For assistance with this request process, contact the Public Affairs Office: 775-788-4515.

Once your request is submitted, you will receive the following text in an email:

Contact information may be found at www.airshows.pa.hq.af.mil under “Find an Aircraft.”

NOTE: Aircraft availability depends on training schedules, mission requirements and crew availability. An approved request does not guarantee aircraft availability.

Notes on Flyover Requests:
  • Your request should be submitted 90 days prior to the event to be considered for support. Less than 90 days’ notice greatly reduces the chance that support will be available. Requests received within 30 days of the event will NOT be considered.
  • Army and Air Force approvals are only for aircraft from the respective service. An organization wishing to have an event approved for either Army National Guard or Air National Guard aircraft must submit a request to each service (the Air Guard can only consider events approved by the Air Force and the Army Guard can only consider events approved by the Army).
