The Vanderhoof Flying Club received a $25,000 grant from the B.C. government which will help when the club hosts the 2016 Vanderhoof International Airshow.

“Vanderhoof is proud to support the Skyfest in Quesnel this year,” Vanderhoof Flying Club president Royce Schaff stated in a news release. “We are taking a hiatus for 2015 and will be in a complementary position with Quesnel to run biannual airshows in our region. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2016.”

Skyfest, Quesnel’s International Airshow runs August 1-2 and will have a Twilight Show July 31 which is part of the Take-Off party.

The Vanderhoof International Airshow was reinstated in 2012 and has grown since that time with more than 4,500 spectators in attendance in 2014.

“Airshows are a lot of work and this allows the group to begin preparing for 2016 right away,” Vanderhoof Mayor Gerry Thiessen said.
