The Sky’s the Limit for the 4th edition of Aero Gatineau-Ottawa!
The National Capital Region’s air show is back for 2021, in a special drive-in format from September 10th to 12th at the Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport. This special show will allow fans to renew acquaintance with the beloved Snowbirds demonstration team and the ever-spectacular CF-18 of the Canadian Armed Forces, but also to be awed by the amazing prowess of the US Air Force F-16 Viper Demo Team, for its first visit to the region! “We chose the drive-in format to be sure of offering our supporters a safe event fully compliant with all the government health recommendations. This formula has been successfully used by the majority of air shows this year, all over the world”, says event chairman John Bennett.

To accommodate the cars, the Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport site will be divided into 7 distinct pricing zones, in front and behind the airport, some grassy, some asphalt, which themselves will be broken down into lots of a minimum size of 20 x 20 feet. Participants will be able to park their cars in their designated space, and take advantage of the adjacent space to set up safely according to their taste and needs. Tickets go on sale June 3 at 11 a.m. at www.aerogatineauottawa.com, starting at $79 per car, for up to 6 passengers including children, depending on the legal capacity of the vehicle.
A site map, program and ticketing details, as well as frequently asked questions about the event are available online now. As spaces are very limited, organizers recommend that thrill-seekers mark June 3 on their calendars, as spaces will likely sell out quickly.
