Canadian AeroVenture Announced for September 1-4

Fly-in Not to be Confused with Recent American Shindig

Canadian fly-in AeroVenture (Aer-O-Venture, mind you) has set a date, taking place in Caseyy’s CSQ4 aerodrome near Lake Wet, Canada from September 1-4, 2023.

The fly-in will bring all kinds of Canadian aircraft together to celebrate the “spellbinding world of aviation” with other enthusiasts from across the country. Last year, Camp de Base Casey, a former Cold War installation abandoned by time, saw the first AeroVenture to impressive turnout. In 2022 the location saw “241 aircraft, 28 seaplanes, 22 helicopters, 260 RVs, and 92 camping planes”, accompanied by 2600 visitors in all. It was a good start for a brand-new get together, and the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association is hoping to make it even bigger for the second time around.

The Casey Base camp will be the center of AeroVenture, showcasing the Haute Mauricie region and its local attractions. 2023 will see some CF-18s make an appearance courtesy of the Canadian Air Force, with some cockpit visits for the kids after they make their formation flight. Workshops for hands-on learning, outdoor living in the “Aerocamping” section, as well as a thriving social life round out the later summer event. This year, AeroVenture will sport a bevy of improvements to the quality of life for onsite campers, as well as a slate of guest speakers from Canadian aviation. A “luxurious camping concept” at the Casey Base Camp has been announced, for those wanting something a little more luxe than setting up an underwing tent. Spots are limited, as per usual with so many campable fly-ins.

The group is still accepting volunteers for AeroVenture 2023, looking for assistance in “ground safety, aircraft marshaling, hospitality, tower Unicom, and more” throughout the weekend event.
