Abbotsford Airshow – True North Strong!

Abbotsford AirShowThe Abbotsford Airshow began in 1962 and was created by the Abbotsford Flying Club and has grown exponentially over the years. Several countries have participated in the show including aircraft from France, USA, Russia, and of course Canada. Following 9/11, many airshows throughout North America were threatened due to high insurance costs but the Airshow continued to grow and gain momentum. In 2014, the Abbotsford Airshow was named one of the world’s Ten Best Airshows and in December 2014 received the prestigious Silver Pinnacle award from the International Council of Airshows.

Abbotsford International Airport hosts the Annual International Abbotsford Airshow.
