Media Access During the Airshow  

The Abbotsford Airshow Society is pleased to welcome working Media from a designated Media Outlet to the 2013 Abbotsford International Airshow.

Media Day will be Friday August 8th, 2014. This day has been designed to allow the media exclusive access to performers, aircraft and airshow representatives.  Limited guided access to performer aircraft will be available on Media Day ONLY. It is an exclusive opportunity not available during show weekend. During airshow weekend, media access on the hot ramp will not be granted for safety and security reasons.  All media rides will take place on Media Day unless otherwise scheduled.

Throughout the weekend, there is a designated Media Tent where credentialed members will be able to view and document the show as it happens.

Credentials will only be issued to Freelance Photographers or Journalists with an official assignment letter from a recognized Media Outlet.

  • The application deadline is Friday, July 25, 2014.  Applications received after this date will not be considered.  Due to the anticipated increase of media attention for the 2013 Airshow, we recommend submitting your forms as soon as possible.
  • A maximum of 2 (two) representatives from any media outlet will be accredited.
  • Priority consideration will be given to outlets who can present the angle/story they wish to pursue and where/when it will be aired or printed.
  • If you do not know the name of the individual who will attend on behalf of your outlet, please indicate their position.  Definite names to be submitted no later than Friday, July 25, 2014.

*Please note that credentials will NOT be issued on site.*
