For Immediate Release
Ontario is helping the Ontario Aerospace Council match Ontario’s leading-edge, innovative companies with global aerospace leaders.
The Council is hosting On the Wings of Innovation 2010 in Windsor, June 4-6th. The goal of the event is to push the boundaries of aerospace technology and spark new ideas that lead to market-driven solutions. The province is contributing $250,000 to support the event.
The event coincides with the Red Bull Air Race. The province has helped secure Windsor as the Canadian venue for the World Championship in 2010 and 2011, which features some of the world’s best pilots navigating a low-level aerial track over the Detroit River.
Today’s announcement supports the province’s new five-year Open Ontario plan that will help open the province to new economic opportunities and will result in new jobs and growth.
“The aircraft of tomorrow will demand cutting-edge innovation. Our province is a leader in the R&D, advanced technologies and business practices that will benefit the global aerospace industry. We want to foster even greater growth in this sector. That’s why our government is excited to introduce the world’s largest aerospace companies to Ontario’s outstanding supply chain.”
