Register HERE.

Event Highlights

This exclusive event will feature some of the biggest names in airshow flying, providing invaluable insights into the world of low-level aerobatics. Learn how to navigate the rigorous International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) Statement of Aerobatic Competency (SAC) levels and system safely and effectively.

Speakers and Evaluators

The distinguished lineup of Aerobatic Competency Evaluators and speakers includes:

  • Scott Yoak
  • Greg Koontz (Greg Koontz Airshows)
  • Gary Ward
  • Clemens Kuhlig
  • Thom Richard

Additionally, there will be two ACEs (Aerobatic Competency Evaluators) on hand for evaluations and re-currency.

Why Attend?

If you have an aerobatic aircraft and aspire to achieve certification to become a waivered airshow pilot, this event is a golden opportunity. Gain the guidance and support you need instead of navigating the complex certification process on your own.


Camping with your airplane is available, and tents and RVs are welcome. For those who prefer more conventional lodging, hotels are just 25 minutes away.

Dual Instruction and Aircraft Availability

There will be a selection of aircraft available for dual instruction, including:

  • 7KCAB Citabria
  • 8KCAB Super Decathlon
  • T-6 Texans

However, the primary focus is for you to bring your airplane. Even if you don’t have an aircraft, you are welcome to attend the ground sessions to learn from the experts.

Combined Event:
This camp is being held alongside the 2024 SkyRanch Shootout, an aviation photography training camp led by Mike Killian Photography and Ricardo von Puttkammer. This is an excellent chance to get professional airshow promotion photos.

Important Information:

Please note, that this is a private training event, not an airshow, and is not open to the public. As 18SC is a private airport, a waiver and insurance are required. For those who prefer a larger paved runway for takeoff and landing, nearby airports KGRD and KAIK are available.
