FAA Officially Designates A-10 as a CAT II Aircraft


Last week, the FAA officially designated the A-10 Warthog as a CAT II aircraft. In doing so, the A-10 Demonstration Team and aerobatic A-10 aircraft at shows will now be able to perform in more compact airspace where most other demonstrations cannot—in true Warthog fashion.  Being categorized as a CAT II aircraft will allow the A-10 Demonstration team to fly on the 1,000’ show line, instead of the 1,500’ show line.

For information on requesting the A-10 Demonstration Team at air shows, visit www.acc.af.mil/Home/Aerial-Events/.
