Through the Aviators 2.0 (Part 1)

“Through the Aviators” is a blog series created and written by the 2018 YVR Flight Crew. It will be composed of installments documenting our interactions and adventures at our 2018 Summer Festival Series events. Stay tuned for weekly stories and recaps! 

At YVR, our mission is to proudly connect BC to the world! It is extremely important to us that we support our local community events and festivals to be a part of BC’s continual growth and innovation. We are supporting a number of exciting events and festivals this summer and want to see you there. Revamping our popular Get Packing activation contest, we are providing more opportunities to win fun prizes and flights!
