Private Pilots Welcome to Apply for Statement of Aerobatic Competency

September 22nd, 2009
Prospective air show pilots wishing to apply and be evaluated for an FAA- or Transport Canada-issued Statement of Aerobatic Competency (SAC) are once again encouraged to do so. For a brief time earlier this year, ICAS had required a commercial pilot certificate, but – for a number of reasons – that requirement is no longer being made. “As always, ICAS expects that any pilot will be not just proficient, but accomplished and deeply experienced in aerobatics before applying for a SAC card,” said ICAS Director of Operations Dan Hollowell. “But we are no longer prohibiting private pilots from applying if they are otherwise qualified.”
