The Department of Defense has directed the military services and the National Guard to cancel aviation support to public events.
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.
North Carolina National Guard Support to organizations and special events
The North Carolina National Guard is a proud member of communities throughout North Carolina in which our Soldiers and Airmen serve. Through an active community relations program, the North Carolina National Guard demonstrates it is a good neighbor and community partner by providing support in four basic areas: Non-Aviation, Military Aerial, Air Force Fly Overs, and Speaker Requests. (see outline below)
Note that most support requests require a minimum of 90 days prior to the event (unless stated specifically) to be reviewed, validated and considered for support. Requests received fewer than 90 days are unlikely to receive support.
The North Carolina National Guard will make every effort to provide support for all events, but event organizers should be aware that support may not be available for military mission requirements may prevent the North Carolina National Guard from supporting specific events and that there are a number of state and federal restrictions on how the North Carolina National Guard can support organizations and events.
