2023-24 NFL Playoff Flyover Events

Hello IFC! Its that time of year again! The NFL Playoffs are coming! The NFL hosts its playoff games in January ending with the famous Super Bowl the second week of February. The playoffs are a time for happiness, heartbreak, and celebration but one key component of an NFL game is the flyover. Military flyovers are done nearly every game for some teams throughout the season. The flyovers are extremely popular for playoff games. So for the second year in a row I’m hosting a flyover event for all 13 games! If your a fan of group flights and flying military jets, these events are right up your alley!

Why The Flyovers?

Flyovers are a major tradition of an NFL pregame. For decades planes of all types have flown over stadiums following the performance of the national anthem.

Extra Info

  • As of upload the aircraft that have been selected for the 1st and 2nd rounds are TBD and may change. This is to give you an idea of what aircraft will be flown on these dates
  • This is being uploaded so early due to the fact I want to have those time slots down so as many people as possible can join.
  • I have yet to choose the aircraft for most or all of the flyovers however I will decide in the coming weeks.
  • Please note that if you are signing up early you are simply signing up for the time slot and not the place we are flying to or the aircraft.
  • Please bare in mind that while I most likely can attend all flyovers, life comes first and the odds of me not attending one is likely.
