The Summerside Airport on Prince Edward Island will once again host Air Show Atlantic on August 25-26, 2018. Financial support through Innovation PEI and the Summerside Accommodations Levy along with confidence in the corporate community has allowed the Show to return to Slemon Park for the fourth time in eight years.
In 2012 and 2015, Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) jets were flown out of Charlottetown, 60 kilometres away, due to the condition of the runway surface. The recent resurfacing of the Summerside Airport runways will allow the CF Snowbirds, as well as other RCAF jets to use the airport as their base to perform over the now familiar site. Having the jets in front of the fans, having pilots available for autographs and events on site is a great addition to the fan experience.
Organizers are putting together a great line-up of performers starting with Dan Fortin in his L-29 Delfin jet, whose performance is sponsored by Spring Valley Building Centre. A number of civilian and heritage performers will be announced over the coming months leading up to the Show.
We're excited to be back and look forward to working with the Summerside community once again!
