Canadian Forces Snowbirds and CF-18 Demo Team 2022 airshow schedules

The two display teams of the Royal Canadian Air Force – the Snowbirds, flying nine CT-114 Tutors, and the CF-18 Demo Team, flying one CF-188A Hornet – have released their 2022 airshow schedule.

The Snowbirds will have a busy season with seven stops in the United States. As in the last few years, the CF-18 will be flying a relatively light schedule, due in part to the age of Canada’s venerable Hornet fleet and challenges in maintaining the aircraft in an operational condition. However, there is one stop in the United States.

Update: In March 2022, the Snowbirds postponed the start of their airshow season, citing the need to extend their training sessions due to the impact of the pandemic and poor weather.
