Cascade Aerospace bringing support and international visibility to the 2016 Aerospace, Defence and Security Expo; and the Abbotsford International Airshow

ABBOTSFORD, BC, Aug. 10, 2016  - Cascade Aerospace is proud to be a top level sponsor of both the Aerospace, Defence and Security Expo (ADSE) as well as the Abbotsford International Air Show (AIA) taking place at the Abbotsford International Airport August 11 to 14, 2016.

“These two back to back events provide important opportunities to invite domestic and international guests to see our world-class facilities and capabilities,” said Ben Boehm, Executive Vice President and COO of Cascade Aerospace. “We work closely with many domestic and international partners to leverage these events to grow our exports markets.  Potential customers visit our facilities, meet our local supply base and witness firsthand the work we do.  This is real Canadian aerospace excellence and innovation in action.”

Both events are instrumental towards introducing government officials and the public to aircraft options available to support Canadian and foreign military, search and rescue, humanitarian and commercial aerospace requirements. To highlight this point, this year Cascade is pleased to be hosting representatives from the Royal Jordanian Air Force in addition to its typical partners and extensive supplier network.

“Having a company with the breadth of experience and capability of Cascade Aerospace directly on site is undoubtedly an asset to the Abbotsford International Airshow,” said Jim Reith, President of AIA. “Their staff and security protocols are helpful when we have foreign or domestic military aircraft with special needs participating.  When we are in a last minute pinch, their entire team is always ready to lend a hand.”

ADSE opens tomorrow, Thursday, August 11 and the opening festivities for AIA will begin at 5:30pm on Friday, August 12.
