FAQ

The first edition of the Volaria Aeronautics Festival will take place from September 24th to 27th, 2020.

Volaria will take place at the YMX Miabel International Aerocity.

It is a family event, everyone is welcome!

Tickets will be available online as of March 2020.

Profits from the Volaria Avant-Premire Gala will be donated to Make-a-Wish Canada Foundation.

The promoter is A. Bros Production, a non-profit organisation.

As the festival is a mainstream destination, cannabis use will not be permitted on the event site. However, there will be areas set aside for this purpose.

The festival takes place rain or shine. However, exceptional measures may be taken if weather conditions are dangerous for participants and/or performers.

The number one priority of the festival organization is the safety of both the audience and the pilots. Therefore, many safety measures, including evacuation plans, are put in place in collaboration with several stakeholders, including a security agency that will be on site as well as the City of Mirabel’s Police and Fire Departments.

According to the ICAS (International Council of Airshows), no spectators have died during an air festival since the 1950s thanks to the security measures put in place by the various organizations. Among other things, it is forbidden to maneuver in the direction of the crowd and a regulatory distance must be maintained at all times between the aircraft in flight and the spectators. However, the risks are greater for pilots. Evaluations are conducted regularly to ensure that they know the maneuvers they must perform at their fingertips.

Absolutely. A team will be on site at all times during the event.

The Volaria festival is a carbon neutral event and is Gold Standard certified by Planetair: the GHGs emitted during the festival will be offset by purchasing carbon credits. The aerial programming of gasoline-powered aircraft will be significantly reduced to make way for demonstrations of electric aircraft and aircraft using bio-fuel.

In addition, our team is working hard to encourage a group effort from everyone, including the visitors:

– Encouraging the use of reusable water bottles and offering free filling stations.
– Encouraging street kitchen trucks to use reusable or recycled materials.
