The Abbotsford Airshow is made possible through the support and participation of our many volunteers. There are numerous areas at the event in which to volunteer. We do our best to balance each area’s needs with the interests of our volunteers. Please understand that we can’t always place every volunteer in their desired area.
Guest Services is one of the most important positions at the Airshow! We have numerous opportunities to host or serve in various Airshow venues. Some serving areas require volunteers to be 19 or older. ServingItRight™ and/or Foodsafe™ certifications are an asset.
|Safety & Security
Patron Safety volunteers operate alongside local police and security personnel to keep our show and guests safe. This includes assisting with parking, traffic, gates, and safety across the event grounds. Volunteers for this crew should be 18 years or older and previous security or law enforcement experience is an asset.
|Airshow Setup and Take-Down
Much of the most critical work to make the Airshow possible happens long before our planes take to the sky. In June through August, many preparations are made to ready the Airport for the Airshow including:
The Abbotsford Airshow holds work parties Weeknights & Weekends in June, July & August. If you are interested in participating, contact the Airshow office by the Friday before you want to help out for more instructions. Lunch and refreshments are offered for all who join us!
It wouldn’t be an airshow with airplanes. These aircraft all need to be received and marshaled to the correct spot. For safety reasons, volunteers in this area need to be familiar with aircraft and airport operations. Previous experience in these areas is required.
Please contact the Airshow office if you are interested in Aircraft Operations.
