About the 2019 Air Show


The Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) (August 31 to September 2) celebrates its 70th anniversary this year with a spectacular new show. 

To salute its special anniversary, the Canadian International Air show is proud to welcome the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team the Red Arrows as part of their North American Western Hawk 19 tour.  (The tour also includes Ottawa, Chicago, Atlantic City, New York, St. Louis, Portland-Hillsboro and Los Angeles).

The Red Arrows are renowned as one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams, having performed close to 5,000 times in 57 countries since 1965.  Flying nine BAE Systems Hawk fast-jets, the team showcases the excellence of the Royal Air Force and demonstrates the global reach and capability of the Service, together with representing the best of British at home and overseas.

Also featured in the 70th Anniversary show is another stellar aerial acrobatic jet team: the beloved Canadian Forces Snowbirds.  The Snowbirds return to the CNE to electrify crowds with their extraordinary aerial maneouvers performed by nine amazing pilots who come from across Canada. 

It is an experience not to be missed!
