Let us represent you

If you’d like your company’s brand to be seen by a million people next year, then give us a call and we’ll make it happen.

 The Vanguard Squadron is the largest and tightest flying civilian formation aerobatic team performing in our nation. For over 20 years now our organization has been representing sponsors at huge air shows all across this great country. Give us the opportunity, and we’ll have your brand highlighted in front of hundreds of thousands of eager spectators.

The Vanguard Squadron performs a dazzling display of formation aerobatics with our 4 RV-3 aircraft and our new Giles G-202. Flying in tight formation through an intricately choreographed and sizzling airshow sequence, the Vanguards are always a crowd favorite. In addition, the Vanguard’s pilots take great pride in meeting and greeting as many airshow fans as possible at every event. This gives us the opportunity to point out all of our great sponsors and to really talk up their products in detail. If you’d like your company’s brand to be seen by a million people next year, then give us a call and we’ll make it happen.

 We have worked with the Vanguard Squadron two times now over the last 9 years we have been doing Air Shows. They are definitely a crowd favorite. Their formation aerobatics are spot on. As an airshow promoter it is a pleasure having these extremely professional performers with us for the day. We will definitely have them back!!!

 The Vanguard Squadron has been a special part of our LifeLight Festival Military Tribute as we have saluted our nation's men and women who serve in our military forces. The beautiful fly-overs and the 'missing man' formation give a well deserved honor to so many who faithfully serve our nation protecting and preserving our freedoms and liberties. The Vanguard Squadron is a professional and inspiring air show that our audience always enjoys.

The Vanguard Squadron has performed two flyovers for us here at the Iowa Speedway. Both flyovers were at our NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race sponsored by American Ethanol. Each event was handled with a sense of professionalism and urgency that it deserved. The team was great to work with leading up to the event, always prompt and courteous and on event day they were on schedule, respectful and most importantly, hit their flyover mark on the dot!
