North East Council of Air Shows

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 eastwards. Everyone in the air show industry is welcome to join us. 

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

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. 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 Plus Bill is always available for any questions or concerns.
