Air Boss 201: Advanced Air Boss Workshop

Monday, December 9th 2019 8:15 am - 4:45 pm

Air bosses are the individuals who control the aviation event activities in accordance with the briefed schedule and federal regulations. They must be prepared to assume responsibility for everything related to safe air and ground operations conducted as part of the air show. For more than 20 years, the ICAS Air Boss 201 Workshop has provided new and aspiring air bosses with an introduction to air boss techniques and tactics.

The Air Boss 201 program offered at the 2019 ICAS Convention will be the second time that ICAS has offered the workshop as a full-day (rather than half-day) program. ICAS has significantly expanded the range of topics covered during the 8+ hour session. We have also increased the number of subject matter experts participating as part of the course faculty. And ICAS has made a number of changes to the format of the program to encourage greater participation by participants and increased retention of the topics covered.

Air Boss 201 Now Required for Letter of Authorization
Effective January 1, 2020, completion of this program or the ICAS Air Boss Academy is a pre-requisite for any person applying to the FAA for a Standard or Recognized Air Boss Letter of Authorization. By itself, the course will not qualify an individual to become an air boss, but this program is focused on air boss issues. And the course can be a useful first step in developing the knowledge base necessary to become an air show air boss.
