Airshows requesting a Legacy Flight with a Hornet TACDEMO, or a Legacy Flight with a static display of an F/A-18, F/A-18G 'Growler', TA-45 'Goshawk' or T-6 "Texan II" should fill out the standard DD-2535 form, requesting government aviation support, and list "TACDEMO / Legacy Flight" under Section 1c. or "Static Display / Legacy Flight" under section 1b.
A Legacy Flight, added to a TACDEMO, or Static Display, will only require support with a rental car and hotel room. There will be no "Performance Fee". Please see the Legacy Flight Support handbook.
Show Organizers should download the Legacy Flight Support handbook.
ICAS was founded in 1967 as a trade and professional association by industry professionals to protect and promote their interests in the growing North American air show marketplace. At the time, this small group of air show event organizers and performers recognized the need for standardization of industry practices in key areas such as safety and business practices that could only be achieved collectively. They knew that -- for such standardization to occur -- the industry needed to act and speak with a single voice and that voice was established in ICAS.
The above information was obtained from the ICAS mission statement on their website.
The majority of show scheduling is done at ICAS - International Council of Air Shows in December. Please be sure to download, read and understand the requirements for a Legacy Flight in the support handbook. Make your request asap and confirm that you can meet all of the requirements.
Legacy Flight Foundation is excited that a new season is upon us and we can bring these historical flights back to an air show near you!
