Requests for Pennsylvania Air National Guard Aircraft

Participation in aerial events is based on aircraft availability, operations tempo, and airfield suitability.  The Pennsylvania Air National Guard has KC-135 Stratotankers and EC-130J Hercules.  Civilians seeking fixed-wing aircraft to participate in aerial events must gain approval from both Secretary of the Air Force, Public Affairs and the Pennsylvania Adjutant General. The following steps will assist in requesting Aerial Event participation:

1) Aerial event requester completes DD2535 with all the pertinent information as it relates to the event.

2) Aerial event requester coordinates and seeks assistance from the local Federal Aviation Adminstration Flight Standards District Office for section IV of the DD2535.

3) Aerial event requester uploads the information from the completed DD2535 onto the Secretary of the Air Force, Public Affairs, Aerial Events website . They will review the request and ensure that it fulfills requirements for receiving aerial support. Upon approval, the event will be listed on the website. In accordance with requirements, accommodations should be made to allow for Pennsylvania Air National Guard recruiting at the event. The website also contains contact information for requesting Aerial Demonstration Teams (USN Blue Angles, USAF Thunderbirds, etc) under the “links” tab.

4) Aerial event organizer requesting the fixed-wing support must submit the DD2535 to the PANG-J33 (ng.pa.paarng.mbx.jeoc-ops@mail.mil or call 717-861-8193 as a Community Support Request).

5) From this point all other actions are internal to the Pennsylvania Air National Guard and should result in approval or denial within 2-4 weeks. Civilians should keep in mind that the Pennsylvania Air National Guard is an operational reserve force. While participation is desirable, it can only be accomplished in accordance with aircraft regulations (i.e. runway minimums and airfield suitability) and suitable operational tempo.
