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. But of course, 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 27 years, NECAS has had a strong regional influence in the aviation industry.

Saturday night keynote speaker: Retired NHL Goaltender Marty Biron
Martin "Marty" Biron, a 16-year veteran of the NHL was our keynote speaker Saturday night. Marty played the first half of his NHL goaltending career with the Buffalo Sabres, and the second half with three other teams.

Born in Quebec, he is now an American citizen and resides in Buffalo with his wife and four children. 

Canadian Deconfliction Committee 

The Canadian Deconfliction Committee is lead by former NECAS President and current member Bill Snelgrove (an 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.
