Air Force Suspends Public Outreach Programs Through May 15

Cancelling Participation In Air Shows

ICAS issued a statement Friday indicating that the U.S. Air Force had made an announcement related to its participation in air shows and other community events in light of the COVID-19 Wuhan virus outbreak.

Official U.S. Air Force Statement:

“The Air Force is committed to upholding the complete trust and confidence of Americans and our community engagement is the key to those connections. However, due to the uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and to protect our Airmen, their families and the communities that support us, the Department of the Air Force is suspending all outreach activities and support to community events through May 15.  This includes, but is not limited to, on-base and civilian sponsored air shows, band performances and community engagements and meetings (speaking engagements, community meetings on installations, base tours, Pentagon visits, etc.).

"We will continue to support funeral flyovers on a case-by-case basis. The Air Force will continuously evaluate the situation and provide updates as needed.

“Please contact the Air Force Aerial Events Office at 703-695-9664 for Aerial Events questions, and your local installation public affairs office for questions regarding local activities.”
