We Are Made To Be Together

What a year it’s been.

#AirShowsAreBack, and #ICAS21 helped to propel our industry into a strong 2022 season and beyond. The resilience of the air show industry in these tumultuous years cannot be overstated.

Created for the opening general session of our 2021 convention, this video, produced by CAVU Digital Media conveys both the challenges and opportunities the air show community faces as we press forward into an increasingly positive outlook.

As we close the 2021 year, all of us at ICAS wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season, and look forward to a strong future together.

Lt. Col. Bob Vaucher reunites with the B-29 Superfortress

VETERANS DAY

We shared this video last year, but it stands the test of time and reminds us that each veteran has a story, and we must take the time to remember, honor, and thank them all as time marches on.

Sadly, we lost Lt. Col. Bob Vaucher (ret) in February of this year at the age of 102, but his story will live on. And hopefully, many others as well.

General information

ICAS was founded in 1967 as a trade and professional association by industry professionals to protect and promote their interests in the growing North American air show marketplace. At the time, this small group of air show event organizers and performers recognized the need for standardization of industry practices in key areas such as safety and business practices that could only be achieved collectively. They knew that -- for such standardization to occur -- the industry needed to act and speak with a single voice and that voice was established in ICAS. Today, the organization’s mission statement has evolved a bit, but still focuses on the core principles around which the organization was created: 1) to maintain safety; 2) to serve as an information resource on air show issues for those within and outside the industry; 3) to provide for the training and continuing education needs of ICAS members and air show professionals generally; and 4) to promote the air show industry to the media, Corporate North America and the general public.

FYI: Newsletter link attached. Sadly, the C-54 you all know as “Spirit of Freedom” will be replaced with a “new” C-54 due to the tornado damage it suffered in April. We will need lots of support to pull this off by Spring to continue our “Mission of History, Education, and Remembrance” so do what you can! Please Share!

David Buck, a Delta Captain living in Senoia set this up with Buck's help. Please chip in... Senoia residents: A tragedy occurred on our doorstep last night. As many of you know, Senoia has had for many years a fly-in community called Big T airport. It is located adjacent to Highway 16 near Circle K/McDonalds. A number of our residents live on that grass runway and fly their planes in and out. One of the residents is the Sorenson family. Mark Sorenson is a world-class airshow performer and airline Captain. His air show flying partner, Mark Nowosielski, is originally from South Africa and resided in Florida. Yesterday Mark Nowosielski flew a newly-acquired aircraft into Big T and picked up Mark Sorenson’s teen aged son and took him for a ride. Something happened and a crash occurred and both perished. To say this is an unspeakable tragedy is an understatement. The Sorenson’s are clearly grieving and I’m sure Mark Nowosielski’s family is well. This is a perfect time to step up as a community and shower the Sorenson’s (and Nowosielski family) with some Senoia love. ❤️ 👉🏻 PLEASE give them privacy and don’t reach out to them at this time. But I’d like to help spearhead collecting some money from their Senoia neighbors and surrounding community to help pay for funeral and other costs. One need that exists is Mark Nowosielski’s Mother will need to fly out from South Africa for the funeral. That will be costly. And I’m sure there are other needs as well. Some of you may remember that I spearheaded the fund raising to “resurrect” the chiming clock at Senoia’s main intersection. I raised funds through GoFundMe. As this has gotten bigger, it’s clear that GoFundMe is going to be the best, and safest, way to continue to raise funds. If you’d like to contribute, here are your options: 👉🏻GoFundMe: gofundme.com/f/twin-tigers-memorial-fund 👉🏻Checks (👉🏻made out to Mark Sorenson) or CASH can be dropped off at Senoia Coffee Company (thank you Brent and April Watson Anderson) Every dollar helps. Let’s send some Senoia love these hurting families’ way. Thank you! Special thanks to another local world-class airshow performer Buck Roetman for his help setting this up. Buck is very close with these families and lost dear friends in this tragedy.
More than just an environment to conduct business, the ICAS Convention in Las Vegas proved to be a great opportunity to meet many of my heros and share countless amazing stories
Please don’t have the Blue Angels & the Thunderbirds at different shows the same weekend in Texas next year.
Helping fans connect and being true to the word “authenticity”! https://www.facebook.com/182289781794428/posts/2662251663798215?d=n&sfns=mo
Can we please get some euro fighters for next years airshows to do some demo’s please😁 thank you
APPLE VALLEY AIRSHOW TIPS: Bring your family and friends! Otherwise, they will be jealous they didn't go. Get there early for best parking which is free! You don't want to end up in the tumbleweeds. Plus, you will be totally annoyed if you missed the F-16 because it's flying early. Bring the kids, because they are going to have such a great time they will sleep well that night. Wear sunscreen, because it is going to be sunny and gorgeous and if you played hookie to go to the airshow your colleagues will know you went to the airshow if you show up to work with a sunglasses tan. Wear sunglasses, hats, etc. because you know you look cool in them. Bring a folding chair if you want. This may help you get so comfi, you won't want to get up and you will not miss any of the performers. Bleachers are available free of charge. You can bring a stadium cushion for the bleachers. Charge your cell phone and maybe bring a back up booster because you we know are going to take a lot of photos and a TON of selfies! And you know you are going to share them with all your friends on social media. Bring cash cause you know you want a blue snow cone so you can take a selfie and post it so you can let your friends know you are at the Apple Valley Airshow. Anyway, ATMs available at minimal fees. What's permitted and prohibited is found online. Do click on the FAQs page, you wouldn't want to bring a large beach umbrella or a large cooler and have to walk back to the car. That would make anyone cranky. Read all the FAQs at http://applevalleyairshow.com/faq No dogs or pets allowed. Service animals ok. However, the jet noise may freak them out and the asphalt may be hot for their paws. You know they like to sleep on the couch when you are gone. So, come out and have a great time. It will be a ton more fun than chilling on the couch. For more info, go to www.applevalleyairshow.com. F-16 Viper Demo Team #ViperDemoTeam #AppleValleyAirshow
Some teaser shots from the New York Airshow (Sunday) More to follow, Enjoy.
