The Canadian Aviation Expo, Canada’s largest trade/consumer aviation show, has teamed up with the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum to make Hamilton International Airport its home.
The Expo, taking place this year May 1 through 3, will mark Canada’s 100th anniversary of flight with more than 100,000 square feet of indoor aviation displays and a large adjacent outdoor aircraft display area. Admission to the Expo will include full access to the museum, which is on site at the Hamilton Munroe International Airport, located in Hamilton, Ontario, just west of Toronto.
The Expo will continue to include strong support and participation by the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association; the Canadian Aviator magazine will once again publish the Expo Show Guide as a feature in its May/June issue. For more information contact Steve Nichols at 416/691-2852.
