Mutual Help List, Airshowquestion

I guess I'll take a contrary view. GA is losing pilots rapidly, FBOs are unable to keep a steady stream of new private & LSA pilots in the pipeline. We have a free opportunity to encourage young people and their families to witness the fun side of aviation. Too many people only think of aviation as airlines. An F/A 18 doing snap rolls, a wingwalker, and skydivers may add that extra dimension that can excite children into considering a new career path.
I say let them watch for free, have Civil Air Patrol & Aviation Explorer Scouts solicit new members on the site, and have EAA do a sign-up for Young Eagles flights.

My experience is that friends and family of hangars with street access get to watch for free.  T-Hangar tenants is another story.  Assuming that you require badges, the tenant of the t-hangar could escort one or two people but you have to decide how to control their movement if their hangar doesn?t face the show.  Gary Airport charges people to sit for parking and lets them view from landside.

Subject: CAA: Mutual Help List, Airshow question


Everyone -

I've been tasked with trying to find out information.  The situation is that we're having our 1st airshow in 2 weeks, and we've got tenants asking if they can have customers and family - and outside organizations such as schools - asking if they can be here at the airport to watch the Blue Angels practice for free.

How do other airports with big airshows handle this?  We do have several options: 1) deny everyone, 2) put the problem onto the airshow organizers, or 3) just let everyone come out to watch the practice.

Any input you have is appreciated.
