Leading Air Show Performers Reflect on Their Career Highlights
On December 6th through December 9th, the Paris Las Vegas Hotel hosted over 1,500 air show professionals and enthusiasts to the 2009 International Council of Air Shows Convention. Started in 1967, the annual ICAS Convention provides professionals a community forum in which to network with industry leaders, plan upcoming air shows, and offer continued support to fellow performers and representatives.
This year's convention saw a two percent increase in attendance over the 2008 convention despite the struggling economy; ICAS President John Cudahy expressed optimism going into the 2010 air show season stating that the attendance at all air shows increased over 2009. With the continued interest and enthusiasm across the country, Aero-TV took the opportunity to ask some of ICAS’ most renowned performers in-depth questions about their experiences in the air show industry.
The air show community is fueled by nothing if not by passion. In the thrill-seeking precision of aerobatics, extraordinary moments are often a part of daily experience; in the fifth question of the six-part series, Aero-TV asks, “What has been your best air show moment?” For a group of individuals who continuously conquer what was once believed impossible, their answers might surprise you. Join Aero-TV as some of the world’s most celebrated air show performers share their most memorable experiences both in and out of the aircraft.
