  1. Québec International Air Show

    Quebec, May 17, 2011

    To all our aviation fans,

    Unfortunately, the Quebec International Air Show will not be coming back to Quebec city in 2012.

    Difficulties in renewing a show of such international calibre along with problems caused by the major increases in commercial traffic at the Jean-Lesage international airport, have led us into making such a major and important decision.

    Several restraints of that nature would have obliged us to take one step backwards in our air show thus reducing the overall quality of the show itself and we would no longer be respecting that international calibre which had always been offered to our fans in the past.

    We have lived an extraordinary experience working with passionate volunteers as well as hundreds of thousands of viewers whom have always participated year after year.

    Thank you, to all our partners and airport managers who allowed us to host an air show with its worldwide elite teams and performers, throughout the years. It was a pleasure to animate and energize Quebec City’s sky, for you all.

They come with 8 aircraft. 6 of them are in the air while they are performing, one backup and one for the advance aircraft. They are based at Nellis AFB near Las Vegas, Nevada. More than 140 persons compose this elite squadron. The new Team leader, this year, Lt. Col Case Cunningham, is eager to discover Quebec City and all it has to offer. Aside from the practice flights, the Thunderbirds will perform on Saturday and Sunday 12th and 13th of June.

    Surete du Quebec (Quebec Provincial Police) Bell 412

    The QPP operates a fleet of a few helicopters to enhance security for the whole of the Quebec vast territory’s population. Based in the Montreal area, the 412 is equipped with the latest technological system enabling the crew to quickly respond to almost any kind of emergencies. The well trained crews are able to fly during daylight hours and night time and also under less than ideal conditions in order to save lives or survey some suspicious activities. The Management of the Emergency Measures section of the QPP is proud to authorize the flying demonstration of this very special helicopter, the Bell 412. You have to be on site to see this demonstration, for the first time, at the Videotron Quebec air show 2010.


    The FG-1D Corsair is one of the most adapted and versatile aircraft of all fighters of the Second World War. Originally designed by Chance Vought in 1940, some Corsairs (like the one shown here) are being built under license by Goodyear to fill the large order of this aircraft with 12,583 copies. It is easily recognized by its wings „reversed seagulls wings“ that allow the aircraft to have a huge Pratt & Whitney R-2800-8 „Double Wasp“ 2000-horsepower engine and have one of the largest propeller on a combat aircraft, with a diameter of 13 feet 4 inches and sport a shorter and more robust landing gear to endure the repeated landings. Capable of reaching speeds of 685 kph and achieving 37,000 feet, it rivalled the best fighters of his era. Its 6 Browning M2, 12.7 mm machine guns are also formidable and it can carry 2,000 pounds of bombs and rockets made this aircraft very versatile. The Corsair presented here is painted in standard U.S. colours called „shipyard blue“ in honour of Lieutenant Hampton Gray, Canadian pilot who received the Victoria Cross during the Second World War.
