To be invited to produce the Show on a busy Air Force Wing, with all of the security and logistics challenges is a real honour and compliment to the Team. We are being trusted to deliver a world-class event and showcase the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in a way we have not done for years. Our origin saw us begin as a military air show in Shearwater, NS but in recent years we have become a wandering event that brings aviation and entertainment to various locations in the Maritimes. This will be our eighth different show site since 2003! We will need all of the hard-won experience we have gained over the past 14 years to make sure this show is exciting and safe. We look forward to working with our partners at 14 Wing and the RCAF to make it a success on the weekend of August 26 & 27, 2017.
While the CF Snowbirds and the CF-18 Demo Team are confirmed to attend, we have a lot of work to do to round out the performer list and to be able finance the scale of Air Show our fans are accustomed to. The corporate community through sponsorship and official supplier deals, as well as three levels of government all need to invest in the Show to ensure exposure and financial benefit to the Region. As a result, the Annapolis Valley and in particular the Municipality of Kings will experience over two million dollars in economic impact. We are very proud to provide such a great return on investment for our government partners. At this time, we are still pursuing appropriate programs within the provincial and federal governments to secure the needed funding.
The Organizing Team has already begun pursuing corporate partners to exchange cash and services for the event so that their brand might access our thousands of fans at the Show site, as well as through our extensive social and mass media outreach. We encourage any organization to contact us to see how they might fit into the Air Show partnership model.
