What We Do
What is NECAS?
NECAS is an organization of professionals, performers, event organizers, military, government regulators and support service providers. Our purpose is to provide air show professionals in the North Eastern region of North America, enhanced networking, education and leadership opportunities at a grass roots level; and to encourage and assist International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) members in carrying out common objectives to enhance the air show industry regionally and internationally.
Our Safety Creed
ICAS represents our great industry. The founding members set standards that have contributed to an enviable spectator safety record. Theses standards are dynamic and continuously honed through years of preparation and experience.
ICAS membership carries the responsibility of maintaining these safety standards.
As an ICAS Member:
- I shall remember first and foremost that spectators place their trust and well being in my mature judgment and professional actions. I shall continuously strive to be deserving of this trust.
- I shall not knowingly violate or stand idly by if others violate the spirit of intent of the rules and standards set forth by ICAS or regulatory authorities.
- I shall work to create an environment that does not invite or promote unsafe actions and do my best to instill these values in my fellow ICAS members.
- I shall not think in terms of my event or my performance. Any adverse safety circumstances at one event may bring irrevocable consequences to the entire industry. It is our industry and our responsibility.
