North East Council of Air Shows

  • Home

Welcome to the online community of NECAS


The North East Council of Air Shows supports air show performers, producers and suppliers in the eastern part of the United States and Canada. In the U.S., our area covers east of the Mississippi River, and in Canada our area covers Ontario and everything eastwards.


NECAS is a regional branch of ICAS -- the International Council of Air Shows.


For 25 years, NECAS has had a strong regional influence in the aviation industry.


NECAS believes in the acronym, Networking Education Camaraderie for Air Show Success. 


Thank you to our members and guests for your continued support.

2017 Conference Keynote Speakers

Earlier this year, we welcomed career aviator and U.S. Air Force serviceman Retired Col. Bill Goldfein, and aerobatic pilot Mike Wiskus as our keynote speakers at the 2017 Conference. 


Each kept us entertained by sharing stories from their illustrious careers.

2018 Conference Guest Speakers

Stay tuned to hear who our guest speakers will be for our 2018 Conference. 





ACTION NEEDED: If you are planning to attend the 2018 Conference, we require information to permit you on Base. 


Some people won't decide until the last minute to attend the NECAS Conference. That's fine in theory, BUT because it takes place on an air force Base, your EAL information (personal information required by Base security to clear your entrance onto the Base) MUST be submitted prior to the Conference.  


Therefore, even if you THINK you may attend the Conference, please submit your EAL info to NECAS Board member and Air Base contact Ben Canetti at benjamin.canetti@us.af.mil (submitting this information DOES NOT oblige you to attend the Conference)


Information required: (active and retired U.S. military I.D. card holders are exempt)

Canadian Deconfliction Committee 

The Canadian Deconfliction Committee is being resurrected, thanks in part to former NECAS President and current member Bill Snelgrove (Ontario-based Air Boss). The purpose is to assist in deconflicting Canadian Air Show dates with differing locations. This will be important in 2017 -- Canada's 150th birthday -- when we expect more than usual requests for air shows in a compressed season. One of the reasons for bringing this committee back is, in the past, the RCAF operated a website that allowed any registered member to view all assets requests. Yet, that site is no longer available.

Please send your date information to cdndeconfliction@gmail.com. Plus Bill is always available for any questions or concerns.
