There is no better way for you to establish a name for yourself in the air show community than through ICAS membership. Quite simply, it's the place where air show professionals get down to business; and a common understanding when you do so is that anyone serious about the business is an ICAS member.

Access to Member-Only Website Content

The ICAS website presents a single source from which you can access virtually any piece of information you will need to operate within the air show industry. To say the content available on the website is worth the cost of membership by itself is not accurate; it is worth FAR MORE than the cost of membership.

Lower Music License Rates

On behalf of all U.S. air shows, the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) has negotiated a current rate of $200 per public air show day with BMI; a rate of $150 per day with ASCAP; and $116 for a one- to two-day air show weekend, $168 for three to four days, and $221 for five to seven days with SESAC.
