The South West Council of Air Shows  is an association of airshow producers, airshow performers and airshow support service providers. SWCAS was created as a regional branch of  ICAS, the International Council of Air Shows to allow for better representation of airshow related issues as well as provide a  local arena to promote the interests and advancement of airshows in the Southwest.

Southwest Air Show Network Guiding Principles:

  1. SWCAS exists to serve its membership and help all members work together to produce the highest quality air shows that are possible considering that many smaller shows are not ICAS members yet could still benefit from the ability to leverage the collective industry intellect and experience.
  2. All members of the air show industry are welcome to join  and that includes air show producers, performers (pilots, announcers, etc.), vendors, and the media. ICAS membership IS NOT a requirement to join SWCAS. Membership includes access to the website, exclusive access to member profiles, participation in the official SWCAS email distribution list and the SWCAS monthly newsletter.
  3. All members have equal rights and their ideas, opinions, and thoughts are relevant and deserve consideration.
  4. SWCAS is affiliated with ICAS (International Council of Air Shows) and defers all regulatory efforts on behalf of the industry to ICAS while providing a communications channel that assures that ICAS is aware of localized issues that could affect the industry.
