Thank you Ottawa for making Ottawa Airport Fun Day 2018 a great success!

Over 700 people attended and enjoyed beautiful weather, with sunny skies and high around 88 degrees! Some very generous pilots donated their planes and fuel in the Young Eagles program to give 100 kids FREE plane rides!


Please give us your feedback if you are so inclined!

See you next year, same weekend...
