Activating our Aerobatic Practice Boxes

Failure to follow procedure could result in the revocation of the practice boxes by the FAA.

  1. The person responsible for the box is the airport manager. The box can only be operated on days that have been scheduled in advance with explicit permission of the Airport Manager.
  2. The airport manager shall open the box. Qualified chapter members may be added to the waiver authority list upon approval of the airport manager. Please refer to the FSS box opening procedure described with each box.
  3. All pilots must be members of the International Aerobatic Club and also be current members of I.A.C. Chapter 78. A list of current members is supplied to the airport manager. Non-members or guests wishing to fly in a box must obtain prior approval to fly a box from the Chapter 78 President, or designated Chapter Officer.
  4. Upon landing at the airport, all participating pilots will first read the waiver and attached special provisions. Pilots will then fill out the attached pilot roster prior to flying in the box. The waiver and pilot log is contained in a three ring binder located in the terminal building at each airport.
  5. The Box Operations log will be completed with each use. Date and hours of operation will be noted along with names of pilots flying.
  6. It is mandatory that at least two pilots participate in any box operation. The box may not be used without at least one ground observer who will monitor the local CTAF frequency with a hand held transceiver and also be in contact with the person flying in the box.  The observer must advise both the pilot in the box and any inbound/outbound aircraft of potential traffic conflicts.
  7. All pilots will be personally responsible that the aircraft they are using are airworthy, insured with minimum of $1,000,000 liability, and properly certificated.
