Cold Lake Air Show 2024
All performers are subject to change. More performers will be announced closer to the show date in July 2024.
CF-18 Demo Team
The CF-18 Demonstration team represents the aviators of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) who conduct and support operations at home and around the world every day. Showcasing the abilities of Canada’s multi-role fighter through an impressive aerobatic routine, the team attends air shows and conducts flypasts across Canada and the United States.
Every year, a new theme is chosen to highlight important milestones or ideas related to the military, Canada or aviation. This theme is then translated into an impressive paint scheme on the team’s CF-18 Demonstration jet and featured throughout the season, raising awareness and building interest amongst audiences in Canada’s Air Force.
Demonstration pilots and support teams are chosen every year from operational squadrons and positions across the RCAF to fulfill the team’s mission of inspiring and connecting with Canadians and fans around the world. The pilot for the 2022 CF-18 Demonstration Team is Captain Jesse Haggart-Smith.

The Canadian Armed Forces Parachute Team, the SkyHawks, is Canada’s only military parachute demonstration team. For over 40 years, we have represented Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces to over 75 million spectators worldwide under our signature Canadian flag parachutes.
Bringing our parachutes in close proximity to build formations in the sky, the team puts on a spectacular show. Performing these aerobatic parachute formations requires a high level of skill and courage; and is known as Canopy Relative Work.
Supported by the Canadian Army, the SkyHawks are based out of Trenton, Ontario, at the Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre. There, they train alongside soldiers who help defend our territory and sovereignty through a wide variety of domestic and overseas missions. From both Regular and Reserve Forces, the team members are from various occupations of the Army, Navy, and Air Force and bring a wide range of experience to their performances.
It is with great pride that we continue to showcase the professionalism, dedication and teamwork it takes to be part of Canada’s military.
