DD Form 2535 Request for Military Aerial Support

What Is DD Form 2535?

DD Form 2535 or the Request for Military Aerial Support is a form used for requesting the participation of U.S. Air Force units in public events within the United States or worldwide. The Department of Defence (DoD) uses the data gathered via the DD 2535 to determine the eligibility for involvement of U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, or U.S. Army Golden Knights demonstration teams in certain eligible events.

The latest edition of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 2535 - was released in December 2016. A fillable up-to-date DD Form 2535 is available for digital filing or download below or can be found on the Executive Services Directorate website.

The form is closely related to the DD Form 2536, Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events (Non-Aviation) that is used to request the participation of Army musical units, troops, or equipment in public events.
