As part of the EcoJet research project, Bombardier will showcase a scale model of an integrated wing-fuselage representing an intermediate business aircraft.
MONTREAL — Bombardier has partnered with Volaria Airshow in Mirabel, Qué., for aerial performances, aircraft static displays and information on the dynamic aerospace industry in the province to be hosted from Sept. 24 to 25, 2022.
“We look forward to showcasing to a larger audience the ingenuity that Bombardier is recognized for and its sustainability actions,” said Ève Laurier, vice president communications, Marketing & Public Affairs in a statement.
“You never know when you will spark a passion, which may one day become a fascinating career.”
Bombardier will be supporting the event as a Gold Partner with several initiatives. The new Challenger 3500 aircraft, accompanied by a flight crew, will be on static display. Challenger aircraft are assembled and delivered in Dorval, Que. Bombardier says its Challenger program generates hundreds of jobs in Québec’s aeronautics sector as well as the local economy through Bombardier’s 8,000 employees in Québec.
The Volaria festival has been acknowledged as carbon neutral with the support of sponsorships, including Bombardier. Carbon offsets will be used to compensate for the GHG emissions associated with the event. The company will also highlight its EcoJet research program that aims to reduce the environmental footprint of business aviation.

In addition to showcasing its products at Volaria, Bombardier is also on the lookout for talented and passionate individuals who want to design and build business jets. More than 500 positions with varying levels of qualifications are available across Bombardier in Canada, with a large portion of them in the Montréal area. As part of their ongoing recruitment efforts, Bombardier representatives will be on site at a job fair presented by Aéro Montréal to discuss employment and career opportunities with Volaria attendees.
