The Careers in Aviation Expo, presented by Wings and Helicopters, returns to its in-person event format on May 7, 2022, with more than 25 exhibitors (listed below) already committed. The Careers in Aviation Expo program traditionally features two events held in different regions of Canada with the goal of connecting aspiring aviators, graduating students and young professionals with leading companies, training organizations and schools.

Early bird pricing of just $25 for full access to the May 7 Career Expo in London, including breakfast and lunch, is available until April 30.

The first May 7 event is set to take place at the 220,000-square-foot production and research facility of Diamond Aircraft Industries, North America, in London, Ontario, one of the world’s leading composite aircraft manufacturers. This host location will provide attendees with a unique setting to learn about the direction of Canadian aviation, in addition to some firsthand insight into the development of Diamond’s training and GA aircraft, including its all-electric eDA40 training aircraft – with first flights scheduled for later this year.
