The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport – CYLS is thrilled to host the Canadian Forces Snowbirds for the second time in June, in support of the Orillia Canada Day and Air show event. The LSRA will participate as the primary staging ground for the event and be host to the renowned aerobatics team as well as civilian performers. The air show display will be over Lake Couchiching.

During the period of June 28 – 30, various NOTAM’s will be published in relation to the event effecting both CYLS and the general area surrounding the City of Orillia – some of these NOTAM’s will include periods of PPR as well as Class F airspace restrictions. We encourage pilots and air crew to review the NOTAM files for each CYLS as well as the CYQA NOTAM file and the Regional (FIR) NOTAM files.

The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is strictly a staging ground and base of operations for the air show. Accordingly and in consideration that the airport will have a “hot ramp” with restricted access, there will not be any static display(s) of the participating aircraft nor an opportunity to see them close; however, those who wish to see the air display staging operations are welcome to do so through the safety of the security fence or the comfort of the airport’s modern Terminal Building.
