Airport Day is back this year.
This year the focus of the event will be on Careers in Aviation and will showcase the many jobs and responsibilities in the aviation industry.
As well, a wide array of aircraft will be on display, that will allow visitors to get “up and personal” with the planes, giving them a more personal perspective on the ground.
Amanda Zannet with Pitt Meadows Regional Airport noted they are still finalizing lineup for display aircraft.
“Anything military is last minute and difficult to predict until a day or two before the event,” she said.
There will also be a marketplace, beer gardens, food carts, and sponsor booths.
Currently, Zannet said they are searching for sponsorship and marketplace vendors for the event.
“As a non-profit society, the airport endeavours to keep this important community event running annually. Support from the community is of vital importance for ensuring its continued success,” she said.
For details on sponsorship packages go to flyypk.ca for details.
The free, family event is scheduled to take place from 11-5 p.m. on June 24.
“We can’t wait to see you in June,” said Zannet.
