Region hosts aviation convention
The region and, specifically, the Region of Waterloo International Airport are playing host this week to the Canadian Business Aviation Association convention and exhibit.
About 600 business aviation professionals are expected to attend the two-day convention, known as business aviation’s biggest event.
“We are delighted to welcome Canada’s business aviation leaders to the Waterloo Region,” said Chris Wood, airport general manager in a release. “Business aviation is an important part of our airport community, and a critical asset for many of the companies headquartered in the region. We are very pleased that we are able to show these influential leaders our dynamic community and facilities.”
Business aviation is an economic powerhouse in Canada, generating $12.1 billion annually, and employing 47,000 Canadians – 23,000 of them directly
Onsite displays, including a selection of planes, go Thursday at the airport.
