New FAST Airshow Operations

Formation operations in waivered airspace at airshows or other aviation events includes some new training and operational restrictions in 2017. Review the new FAST Airshow Operations guide in the FAST section of the CJAA website for all the details.

The Air Show Operations Appendix F was written to help provide FAST pilots with the knowledge and background information needed to operate safely within the air show environment where a Certificate of Waiver (CoW) is in effect.
