Foundation Opens Nominations for Hall of Fame

May 11th, 2013

The ICAS Foundation is looking for nominations for the Air Show Hall of Fame, created in 1995 to recognize those who have made significant contributions to the air show industry. It is currently home to more than 47 heroes and legends representing the pilots, stunt persons, announcers, producers, aircraft designers, builders and other innovators who have changed the face of air shows forever. Past inductees include: Bob Hoover, Curtis Pitts, Patty Wagstaff, Sean D. Tucker and Paul Poberezny.

Submit nominations using the Hall of Fame Nominating Petition, available for download at www.icasfoundation.org. Eligible nominees include pilots, announcers, stunt persons, producers, designers and builders, but are not limited to these categories. Candidates must have made a contribution that had a significant impact upon the air show industry; the contribution may be demonstrated through showmanship, performance or innovation, and may encompass a single accomplishment or a body of work. The candidate must have entered the air show industry a minimum of ten years prior to the year of nomination. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2013. A selection panel designated by the Foundation Board of Directors will choose this year's inductees. The induction ceremony will be held during the annual ICAS Convention in December in Las Vegas, Nevada.
