CBAA 2017 Recap
Aug 18 2017
The Chartright team travelled to Abbotsford, BC for the Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA) 2017 which took place August 9-11. Tending to our booth this year were:
- Andrew Money – Chief Pilot
- Allan Armstrong – Human Resources Manager
- Justin King – General Manager Western Canada
- Colin Jesney – Captain MD87
- Cathy Caldarola – Director of Sales & Marketing
With five educational streams covering critical topics, plenary and information sessions with leading government and industry leaders, and more networking opportunities than ever before, CBAA 2017 was must-attend event for anyone in private and business aviation. For the first time ever, CBAA was held in conjunction with the Aerospace Defence and Security Expo (ADSE), and the combined event attracted over 1,000 aerospace and business aviation professionals to the city. As an added bonus, the event coincided with the Abbotsford International Airshow which is rated as one of the top 10 airshows in the world.
Hope Air Charity Golf Tournament
Chartright was again proud to sponsor a hole at the Hope Air Annual Charity Golf Tournament which took place on August 9th. Hope Air is a national charity that provides free flights to people who cannot afford the cost of an airline ticket to get to vital medical care. Hope Air serves people from across Canada, of every age, with any illness. Since 1986, they have arranged over 100,000 flights.
CBAA 2018 will take place at Chartright’s Hangar 53 at the Kitchener/Waterloo Airport (YKF) June 12-14! Click here to view the promo video.

Why are we wearing Oktoberfest hats you ask? As well as being known as a growing tech hub of Canada, the Kitchener/Waterloo area hosts the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich, Germany. CBAA 2018 will be full of the tech and Oktoberfest themes.
Chartright is looking forward to next year!
