Arrival by Aircraft 

The 2023 NOTAM which describes AirVenture arrival and departure procedures can be downloaded in a digital version at, or order a free printed copy via that website or by calling EAA Membership Services at 800-564-6322.

The NOTAM describes the sign that pilots should bring in their airplanes with “IAC” printed in bold letters. This sign will be shown to EAA Parking personnel so they can direct you to the IAC parking area. It is a simple and efficient system for printing and carriage in your aircraft. Pdf of a sample sign is attached at the bottom of this page for printing.


 Pre-Registration and Arrival Procedure

Pre-Register to park your aircraft airshow center in the IAC parking area! LINK COMING SOON.  There is  an Award for Outstanding Aerobatic Aircraft at 2023 AirVenture. All IAC members parking their airplane in the IAC parking area will receive a complimentary welcome bag.

After being directed to the IAC Parking area by EAA Parking personnel (showing them your “IAC” sign will assist them), pilots should proceed to the IAC Aerobatic Center to check in with IAC personnel, let us know you have arrived, and to sign our Guest Book. All aircraft should be registered with EAA Aircraft Registration as well and directions will be provided at the IAC Aerobatic Center if you are not familiar.

IAC Aircraft – Bring Your Own Tie-Downs

All aircraft must be tied down and EAA Parking advises us that the best solution is to bring your own tiedowns. Tiedowns are available commercially at the AirVenture site and loaners are also available from EAA, but these sources cannot be counted on if arrivals are “after hours” or supplies run low. Please plan to bring your own equipment. EAA has the “Claw” tie-down device on sale and comes highly recommended.

The IAC currently has 40 chapters scattered throughout the United States, Canada, Argentina and Norway. The chapters are the foundation of the organization hosting aerobatic judge schools, practice days, open houses and up to 40 sanctioned competitions a year. Chapter locator. In light of the IAC's aerobatic endeavors around the world, it is easy to think that its main concern lies in major competitions. Though they are an important part of the IAC competition activity, the true story of the IAC's grass roots efforts lies in the regional competitions it sanctions each year.

IAC members enjoy many benefits of membership some of which are; an aerobatic judges school program, the Achievement Award program (Achievements recognized in non-competition and competition environments), the Collegiate programgovernment relations representation, a safety committee providing technical and safety tips, and scholarships for aerobatic and upset training.
