Aircraft Acquisition

David Schultz Airshows started in 1994 as a company for military aircraft acquisition for airshows throughout North America. Still today, we excel with our abilities to fill any airshow’s ramp with military and/or civilian aircraft from around the world.  We are highly respected by military commands, bases, and pilots as well as hundreds of civilian aerobatic pilots and warbird owner/operators for taking care of their needs fast, efficiently, and with utmost attention to detail.   

As we work with numerous USAF Bases and Naval Air Stations each year, we are on a first named basis with many of their Wing Commanders, Squadron Commanders, Schedulers, and Ops-Os. This enables us to get your event in front of many events to get aircraft from all over the world to your event as a static display or flyover. Proven by 25+ years of successes, we can fill your ramp with aircraft all all types while maintaining your airshow budget.

If military participation is desired by an airshow site, the DD2535, DD2536, and 1 CAD paperwork necessary for Armed Forces participation from both Canada and the United States can not only be provided but also filed through David Schultz Airshows. With contacts at hundreds of different installations and squadrons throughout the world, David Schultz Airshows not only contacts the individual squadrons but also the pilots in order to get your event top billing in a very competitive airshow market. The same is true with Civilian organizations and private pilots.

David Schultz Airshows has hundreds of civilian performer contacts ranging from aerobatic teams and soloists, to warbird owners and flying museums. With David Schultz Airshows, contracts can be drawn up with the civilian performer(s) / organization in order to acquire historic and vintage aircraft for your event. Much unlike others in the business, David Schultz Airshows does not get a commission for booking any civilian aircraft performers or aircraft at airshows. Like with our other operational services, a flat fee coordination charge covers all coordination of both military and civilian aviation assets. 

With our services, all contracts between the civilian aircraft and performers are handled by the local airshow/airport manager or sponsoring agency with payment directly from the airshow. We review the civilian contracts so that the airshow is protected from excessive requirements from aircraft owners with regards to oil requirements, hotel rooms, rental cars, avgas, and other logistical items.

We also handle all aspects of the Support Manual paperwork submittals for all jet teams, parachute teams, and single ship tactical demonstration teams. We have numerous professional staff members that are highly respected project officers for the jet teams when they visit one of the venues in which we are contracted.

With our fantastic and professional staff of airshow professionals, we have a great reputation with the military units and civilian aircraft owners. Many desire to participate in the events in which we are associated and return to additional events that we coordinate at other locations. For airshows with military demonstration teams, our company also handles all paperwork requirements for the teams.

We also have contacts with nearly every civilian performer in the industry today along with many of the warbird and museum owner/operators. This enables us to get aircraft from the nearly 120 year history or aviation as well as hot air balloons, ground equipment, and other exhibits for your airshow.
