Bombardier will demonstrate its sustainability efforts this weekend as a major sponsor and participant in the debut of the Volaria Airshow in its hometown of Montreal, Québec. The show, which will feature aerial performances and a static aircraft display, was designed to highlight the region’s rich aerospace history, including Bombardier, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.

The airframer will be displaying its new super-midsize Challenger 3500, which is assembled in Montreal Dorval by some of its 8,000 employees in the province. In addition, it will highlight its EcoJet research initiative that aims to reduce business aviation’s environmental footprint. The OEM will show a scale model representing the integrated wing-fuselage design of a future intermediate business aircraft, dubbed EcoJet, a design that will test unconventional aircraft configurations that could significantly reduce fuel consumption in the future.

With the support of its sponsors, the festival has been declared carbon-neutral. Carbon offsets will be used to nullify all greenhouse gas emissions generated by its activities.

“Bombardier is very pleased to support the Volaria Airshow, an event where families can come and see airplanes up close and have a glimpse of the vibrant aerospace sector in Québec,” said Ève Laurier, the airframer’s v-p of communications, marketing, and public affairs. “You never know when you will spark a passion, which may one day become a fascinating career.”
