Request a display or flypast

Anyone can request a display or flypast by the Red Arrows. The Team do not choose where and when they will display; display allocation is controlled by the RAF Events Team.

All bids must be made in writing before the end of September for the following summer.

Request a flypast

The team also complete many flypasts each summer as they transit from display to display. The Red Arrows’ display season generally begins in May and finishes in September each year, and the team are unable to perform flypasts outside this period. Flypasts, with very rare exceptions, are permitted only when the Red Arrows are already in transit close to where the flypast is required. They are not programmed to do flypasts that involve a considerable deviation from the planned route because this would incur extra fuel and aircraft operating costs.

Please note that the team are not permitted to carry out flypasts for weddings, funerals or birthdays.

Flypasts are always subject to cancellation at short notice for operational reasons such as weather conditions and Air Traffic Control restrictions.

Fully completed forms must be received by 31st March 2016. Any requests after this date will not be considered.
