2017 U.S. National Aerobatic Championships - Registration Fees:

This year ALL competition flights will be video-taped (not just Advanced).  It would initially appear that the registration fees have gone up, however they will actually save you a little money this year as there will be no charge for hangar fees (normally 100).   Advanced Team Aspirants will not have to pay the normal $200 fee as in the past.

So here are the adjusted registration fees:

Active-Duty Military: $310
Collegiate: $235
Primary: $260
Sportsman thru Unlimited (Power and Glider): $460
4-Min $160
For the 4-minute Free - if you do not want your flight video-taped, it will be the usual $100.00

These fees will apply until the pre-registration deadline of September 18th. After that there will be an across-the-board late fee of 10%. So it will be in your best interest to pre-register. Note that as of February 21st, the IAC's new Aerobatic Contest Registration System (ACRS) is not available for pre-registration for Nationals. It's availability will be announced.






Dates for the 2017 US National Aerobatic Championships have now been set: 23-29 September 2017 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Oshkosh offers the best facilities for an aviation event in the world by virtue of its development over the last 45 years as the site for EAA AirVenture. IAC has invested heavily in upgrading its own pavilion there and it will serve as headquarters for the contest. The box will be over the airfield. Also being planned are other activities during the week such as evening social events at the EAA Nature Center and closing ceremonies and awards banquet at the EAA museum’s “Founder’s Wing” – the place where EAA’s annual Hall of Fame ceremonies are held. In the coming months, those plans will go forward and we will keep you up to date on these pages.
