While in Dayton, the Red Arrows pilots will be meeting with high school students from the Dayton Regional STEM School. The Red Arrows will also host several other private events throughout the day.

The tour is the Red Arrows’ largest ever in Canada and the United states, according to the organization.

The team consists of 11 pilots, nine of whom fly in the display, and more than 100 support personnel and technicians. The Red Arrows had completed nearly 5,000 displays, in 57 countries, by the beginning of 2019.
