Manitoba Aerospace is proud to present our 16th annual dinner and awards evening to celebrate excellence in the aerospace industry. This event is also a very important fundraiser for the Manitoba Aerospace Student Awards Endowment Fund so please consider showing your support through sponsorship of this event.
This year, the 16th Annual Manitoba Aerospace Awards Dinner will be held on November 23, 2017, at the Victoria Inn.
Every year since 2007, approximately 700 Grade 6 students have participated in the annual Aerospace and Aviation in Manitoba (AAiM) Day held at Red River College’s Stevenson Campus. The day’s events are designed to introduce the young students and their teachers to the concepts they are learning in the Flight module in the grade six science curriculum at school as well as to the city’s thriving aerospace and aviation industries.
AAiM Day for 2017 will be held on May 26th.
