NECAS is the North East Council of Air Shows, a subsidiary of ICAS, the International Council of Air Shows.
We are a regional organization that represents air show performers, air show event organizers and producers, support service providers, the military and other government regulators. Our purpose is to provide air show professionals in the North Eastern region of North America (U.S. and Canada) enhanced networking, education and leadership opportunities at a grassroots 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.
NECAS hosts an annual conference that brings together performers, event producers, suppliers and the military to network, share best practices and exemplify why this is one of the best industries to be involved in. The conference has traditionally taken place in February at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.
NECAS is committed to a safe and sustainable future for the air show industry, both within our region and throughout the air show community.
ICAS represents our great air show industry. The founding members set standards that have contributed to an enviable spectator safety record. These standards are dynamic and continuously honed through years of preparation, experience and information exchange.
