    Can someone from the EAA explain to me why they don't support the IAC????

    You may not know, but the World Championships are going on right now in South Africa... I say you might not know because the EAA website has not a single mention of it....

    And you may also not know that the US Nationals will be held this month in Oshkosh. You would be forgiven for not knowing because the EAA's calendar of events does not even list it AT ALL even though the IAC is supposed to be part of the EAA and the EVENT IS BEING HELD AT THE EAA HQ!!!!!

    So, why is it that the EAA just ignores the IAC?

    Ssmdive, you have a case that certainly deserves an answer.

    I should have put that in green. I was being a smart a**.
    Never knew it was affiliated with EAA though. But yeah, that is a good question.

    The reason the US Nationals in Oshkosh are not being promoted (or on the EAA Calendar of Events) is because it's not a public spectator event. Events on our calendar are designed to promote activities that our members can either participate in or watch. The IAC U.S. National Championships are neither. That's not to say people couldn't stand at Wittman Regional Airport and watch, but the event itself is not designed for spectators.

    I knew about the event in South Africa only because I have a friend competing in it.
    Someday I'll come up with something profound

    Why would they not be a public spectator event? I am uninformed, please educate me.

    Huh, you might think that the EAA members might actually be interested. Which goes to show how the EAA is not even trying to support the IAC, they don't even want to bother to tell the EAA members. We are not talking about inviting everyone, but you are hiding it from EAA members.
