Dear Diamond Partners,

DiamondFest, the infamous Hour of Power, and the London Air Show are coming up quick! Will you join us there?

We wanted to make sure you received our invitation the annual DiamondFest in combination with the London Air Show from September 13-15, 2019 in London, Ontario (CYXU)! In this much-anticipated annual event, you will get the opportunity to witness Canada’s greatest air show in an exclusive and comfortable front-row setting, whilst having the chance to visit the Diamond factory, attend seminars, and mingle amongst our VIPs.

London Air Show features performances by the CF-18 Demonstration Team, Canadian Forces Snowbirds, A-10C Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team, Northrop’s T-38 Talon and a show-stopping performance by London’s own Red Bull Air Racer, Pete McLeod. Certainly, a large static display including the complete Diamond Aircraft model line-up will also be available for viewing. Further information about the airshow can be found online at http://www.airshowlondon.com

Area Recommendations:

We often see Diamond owners combine this event with a vacation in the area. September is a great time in Southwest Ontario with pleasant temperatures and many attractions and nearby fly-in destinations including:

- Gorgeous fall-colours at Bruce Peninsula National Park (Tobermory Municipal Airport CNR4)
- Wine-tasting at idyllic Pelee Island Winery (Pelee Island Airport CYPT)
- Spectacular Niagara Falls region including Niagara-on-the-lake and wineries (Niagara District Airport CYSN)
- Dive into the hustle of metropolitan Toronto via Billy Bishop Airport (CYTZ)
- Please let us know if we can assist you with any plans for your get-away!

We are looking forward to seeing you very soon at this year’s DiamondFest and London Air Show!
