• Stations where the cadets will display their skills and technical knowledge.

• Representatives from BCIT’s aviation technology programs.

• Opportunities to win prizes (including flights, gift certificates from local businesses and more).

• A special 2 p.m. draw for youth aged 10 to 15 to win a scenic helicopter flight with Airspan (to be embarked upon immediately following the draw, weather permitting).
