In an effort to recognize the current turmoil enveloping Ukraine, Waterloo Warbirds has decided to change the current Soviet-era Russian markings on our classic Aero Vodochody L-29 Delfin and MiG-15 UTI to Ukrainian Air Force (L-29) and Polish Air Force (MiG-15 UTI).    “I feel this is the right thing to do at this critical moment in time,” said Richard Cooper, the owner of both aircraft.  Changing the MiG-15 to Polish Air Force markings denotes an actual historic assignment of this aircraft, which flew for the Polish Air Force from the mid-1950’s to 1992.  Changing the L-29 to Ukrainian Air Force markings recognizes that this aircraft type was operated by the Ukrainian Air Force after the breakup of the former Soviet Union in 1991.   Significant assistance in changing the aircraft markings was provided by Fleet Image Inc. of Ayr, Ontario.  Waterloo Warbirds remains committed to honouring those who have served...

From Thursday, August 12th to Saturday, August 14th, 2021, Waterloo Warbirds and the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association will be hosting a formation training clinic at the Region of Waterloo International Airport. 

On Saturday, June 19, 2021, Waterloo Warbirds will take to the skies for Operation Revival, a formation flyover recognizing the role all Canadians have played over the past year in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Our flight will also pay special honour to all the essential workers who have worked tirelessly on the front lines to keep society running and to keep our communities healthy and safe.

Jenna is our Health and Safety Coordinator, helping to make sure we have the necessary systems and training in place to deliver safe and successful flights every time. She sat down with us to talk about the critical role health and safety plays in an aviation environment, the importance a strong team makes to safety, and to share her advice to anyone interested in aviation!
