Tuscaloosa Regional Air Show Spectator Guidelines
We are happy to have you, your friends and your family as our guests here at the Tuscaloosa Regional Airport. We will do everything to ensure that your air show experience is safe and enjoyable, and every effort will be made to minimize delays in entering and leaving the air show.
We ask for your cooperation in keeping potentially dangerous items safely outside the flight line gates. At the entry points to the air show flight line, all bags will have the potential to be quickly inspected and all individuals are subject to search prior to entering the air show flight line.
Upon arrival to the entrance lines, large bags/backpacks, large ice chests and coolers will not be permitted. It is recommended that spectators minimize the number and size of permitted items to reduce the inspection time prior to access into the flight line area. There will be a First Aid tent with medics on site in case an emergency were to occur, along with a Lost Kids tent. Please download the site map for an exact location of these tents, which can be found under the General Info tab at www.tuscaloosaairshow.com.
• Unattended bags and packages will be removed from the premises
• Sun protection, including hat, long-sleeved shirts and long pants and sun screen are recommended
• Water will be available for sale throughout the Air Show area
• Wear comfortable footgear; the flight line is paved and you may walk long distances
Smoking is not permitted near aircraft or in hangars, including the Air Show Expo and static display area.
Motorcyclists are encouraged to wear helmets, reflective vests and long sleeves.
The National Safety Council believes that defensive driving applies to people who push bike pedals as well as to those who push gas pedals:
• Obey traffic rules. Cyclists must follow the same rules as vehicle drivers.
• Never hitch on cars.
• Before riding into traffic, stop, look left, right, left again, and over your shoulder.
Use your head: Wear a helmet. Head injuries cause about 75 percent of all bicycling fatalities. The first body part to fly forward in a collision is usually the head, and with nothing but skin and bone to protect the brain from injury, the results can be disastrous. It is clear that taking precautions in traffic and wearing protective equipment are a cyclist's best shields against accidents.
The following items will not be permitted on the flight line and are subject to confiscation:
The following items are permitted on the flight line. All permitted items will be inspected prior to admission to the flight line. It is strongly recommended that spectators minimize the number and size of permitted items to reduce access time into the flight line area.
