Over the last 100 plus days of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic health crisis our Airshow Committee has been closely following the guidance provided by Federal, Provincial, and Municipal officials and following the restrictions imposed on our communities by the Public Health authorities in order to limit the impact of this pandemic.
With less than 70 days left until the scheduled airshow on September 2, 2020, given the combined impact of limited Canadian Air Force assets being available, and the continuing Public Health and Safety restrictions in place at this time, as well as, the necessity for the Airshow Committee to act with prudence, we are officially cancelling the 2020 Community Charity Airshow and have started planning for our 2021 Airshow scheduled for September 1, 2021.
Full article linked here:The Commander of 2 Canadian Air Division, Brigadier-General Denis O’Reilly, has today lifted the operational pause on the CT-114 Tutor fleet.
The operational pause was implemented following a Snowbirds CT-114 Tutor accident in Kamloops, B.C. on May 17, which resulted in the death of Captain Jennifer Casey, the Snowbirds Public Affairs Officer.
The return to flying operations follows a thorough technical and operational risk analysis that has outlined a series of risk mitigation measures
The remainder of the Snowbirds 2020 air demonstration season has been cancelled, and the team will now focus on gradually returning to flying operations. With the operational pause lifted, the aircraft in Kamloops, B.C. will return to 15 Wing Moose Jaw, Sask., which is expected to happen over the next two weeks.
