5th Annual Aviation Fun Day
Saturday, August 17, 2019 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

Grab your walking shoes and explore the airport on foot at this free family event. Learn how the aviation industry works, get up close to airport equipment, vintage aircraft and classic cars. Talk to the people behind the scenes and learn about career opportunities at your local airport.

Visit aviation-related displays in the Airport's Terminal Building, Waterloo Wellington Flight Centre, Royal Canadian Air Cadet Youth Development Centre, and see unique and vintage aircraft up close on Apron IV, an area usually restricted to the public.

Please bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation for the Cambridge Self Help Food Bank and The Food Bank of Waterloo Region.
