About

A brief history of the event:

  • Gatineau Airshow (2017) is a new non-profit corporation, created for the Aéro 150 event that took place in 2017 in the context of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.
  • The first edition in April 2017 featured the Patrouille de France together with the Canadian Snowbirds. The event was free of charge and despite appalling weather attracted over 5000 people.
  • The second event on Sept. 15, 2018 included the Canadian Snowbirds, the CF-18 Demo Team and close to a hundred aircraft, performing and static. A new exhibition was held in the Vintage Wings Hangar. The estimate crowd was 12 000!
  • Third edition in 2019 took place over three days. A second event also took place in August, prior to the event, as the Red Arrows visited Gatineau. AERO Gatineau-Ottawa was a success with more than 20 000 visitors. The F-35, the visit of Chris Hadfield for a second year and a night show with Manfred Radius were amongst the crowd pleasers!

Mission:

Our objectives are to foster aviation awareness among all audiences, especially young people, and the  preservation and demonstration of historic aircraft.
