Community Charity Airshow

Community Charity Airshow

The Community Charity Airshow returns to the Brantford Municipal Airport (110 Aviation Ave., Brantford) on Wednesday, August 29 for a spectacular day of sights and sounds. This event began in 1999 (formerly called the Rotary Charity Airshow), and continues as a traditional summer activity for the whole family to entertain and showcase the thrill of aviation.

Gates open at 11:00 a.m. where you can enjoy close ups views of spectacular aircrafts like the: Noorduyn Norseman, which was used during the second world war by the Royal Canadian Air Force for radio and navigational training; a Boeing Stearman, the plane used to train 50% of the US Military pilots who fought in WWII; and a de Havilland Canada Chipmunk, known for being fully aerobatic with similar characteristics to the Spitfire. 

The flying show starts at 2:00 p.m. and runs through 5:00 p.m., featuring performers like the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, the Hamilton Sport Parachute Club, and the debut of the Bone Shaker Jet Truck – capable of reaching speeds well over 300 mph.

Two shuttle buses will run on a first come, first-served basis, which leave from the Transit Terminal for the Airport at noon and 12:30 p.m. and return at 4:30 or 5:00 p.m. For additional details about the shuttles, contact Brantford Transit by phone at 519-753-3847. If you prefer to drive yourself, onsite parking is $20.

Attending the Airshow is absolutely free, but donations are greatly appreciated; proceeds go toward the Rotary Club of Brantford and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
