The US Navy Blue Angels demonstration squadron have selected Air Show Atlantic at 14 Wing Greenwood as their 2019 Canadian air show site. Each air show season, the Blue Angels perform only one show outside of the United States - they have accepted the invitation from our Show for the 2019 Labour Day weekend (August 31 & September 1, 2019).
Colonel Mike Adamson, 14 Wing Commander says: "After a highly successful show in 2017, we are excited to announce that 14 Wing Greenwood will once again host the Atlantic Canada International Air Show in 2019."
"It's an honour and a responsibility, but it is just a step toward a Show in 2019. We require significant contributions from our government and corporate partners to get a go-ahead from our Board of Directors in order to produce a Show. Fortunately, we have had preliminary discussions with Municipal and Provincial governments and we can now finalize proposals to them. We have worked for over a year to have this invitation accepted and we hope for quick and positive turn-arounds on our requests," says Colin Stephenson, the Show's Executive Director.
Air Show support has seen excellent returns on investment for our government partners in the past. The Show typically brings in over $2 million dollars in economic impact to the host community it visits each year. The impact has been measured and confirmed at multiple show sites over the years. Air Show Atlantic has been produced at 8 different show sites since leaving its traditional home at Shearwater in 2004. The roots of this Show date back to 1981 when Shearwater first officially produced it as a military show. It has been a not-for-profit production since 1996. This will be the fourth time the Blue Angels have been hosted since then.

realize the challenges presented by traffic volume in 2017
and are already addressing this by making a significant
investment in traffic control and working together with
local authorities very early in the process.
