Peterborough Airport is proud to be celebrating 50 years of operation and the City of Peterborough is celebrating the 50th anniversary throughout 2019. Check out the details on our Peterborough Air Show website.

The main event for the 50th anniversary celebration will be a two-day weekend Air Show on September 21 and 22, 2019 featuring the Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds aerial demonstration team. For the first time in 15 years, the CF Snowbirds performance will display their latest formations and manoeuvres in Peterborough. The Air Show will also include additional aerial demonstrations, static aircraft displays, local food vendors and activities for kids.

“The 50th anniversary of the Peterborough Airport is a celebration of the City's connection to the aviation sector and a tribute to the many people who have contributed to the airport's success. The City's investment in the airport over the past decade has delivered significant economic growth for our region and this will be a great opportunity for the community to experience it,” said Mayor Diane Therrien.

Stay tuned for more details including the air show schedule, static aircraft display information and tickets sales, which will be made available in 2019.

The CF Snowbirds represent the Army, Navy and Air Force and work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the Canadian public. Serving as ambassadors of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), the CF Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of skill, professionalism, teamwork, discipline and dedication inherent in the men and women of the CAF and they inspire the pursuit of excellence wherever they go in North America.

“We are excited to mark the 50th anniversary by presenting the CF Snowbirds to the public that have supported the airport over the past half century. About 16,000 people visited the Peterborough Airport during the Air Legends event in 2018 and we look forward to building on those numbers,” remarked Trent Gervais, Airport General Manager.
