Requesting National Guard Support for Community Events
The Public Affairs Office is the Adjutant General's Department's point of contact for community requests for the state of Kansas only.
We can not assist with requests for other states.
Please submit requests for military fly-overs, static displays, cannon salutes, color guards, speakers and similar support from the Kansas National Guard in writing, either by mail or e-mail. Please include as much detail as possible, including date needed, type of request, organization name, type of event and a point of contact. These requests require approval from the Department of Defense.
Please allow a minimum of 60 days in advance of the event.
See Below on Specifications on how the Kansas National Guard can Support your Future Event!
Requesting a UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopter Flyover and/or Static Display
The Department of Defense has directed the military services and the National Guard to cancel aviation support to public events.
Consequently, HQ US Army and HQ US Air Force have suspended public aerial events (flyovers, aerial demonstrations, and aircraft static displays) except by designated military service aerial demonstration teams until further notice.
Only exception to policy requests for national-level events will be considered by the military services and must be requested by the State Public Affairs Officer through National Guard Bureau Public Affairs.
Request a KC-135 Stratotanker Flyover
To request a flyover of a Kansas Air National Guard KC-135 stratotanker please go HERE and fill out a request for aerial support on-line.
If your event is approved by the Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs you will receive an approval letter. Once the approval has been received then forward both the completed DD2535 and the approval to the Adjutant General's Public Affairs Office by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax 785-646-1622.
The Public Affairs Office will contact you if the Kansas Air National Guard will be able to support your request.
Please note that that approval by Secretary of the Air Force does not guarantee that the Kansas National Guard will be able to support your request.
