Working with Jet Vehicles


Jet-powered ground demonstrations are enormously popular with fans, and – for nearly fifteen years – ICAS has urged their operators and the event organizers who hire them to follow a few simple rules: 1) The drivers and vehicles must meet the minimum standards set by either the National Hot Rod Association or the International Hot Rod Association. 2) The drivers and vehicles must have liability insurance coverage and must be prepared to show you their certificate of insurance. 3) A jet-powered vehicle should never operate closer than 500 feet from the audience, should never be pointed in the direction of the audience during a high-speed run, and should never be operated at high speed in wet or high wind conditions.
