“Aviation events include air shows, closed course air races, parachute demonstration jumps, balloon meets, and fly-ins conducted before an invited assembly of persons, for which the FAA issues a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization”
Depends on regulations being waived
Varies upon the type of aviation event and the location
Some events require nothing more than waiving § 91.303(e) to permit aerobatic flight at less than 1,500 feet above the surface.
Other events that consist of flybys and static displays may only require waiving sections of part 91 for aircraft speed limitations, minimum safe altitudes, or limitations while operating in the vicinity of airports or within Class B, C, D, or E airspace.
There should be a corresponding special provision that gives the conditions that must be followed for each section and/or subsection to be waived to maintain an equivalent level of safety.
