CF-18 Demonstration Team

The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Captain Matthew Kutryk as the pilot for the 2017 CF-18 Demonstration Team.

Captain Kutryk will wow audiences around North America during the 2017 air show season, flying his specially painted CF-188 Hornet commemorating Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.

“This year marks Canada’s 150th anniversary of the Confederation and the RCAF is honoured to be able to contribute to the celebrations of this important milestone with the CF-18 Demonstration Team,” said Major-General Christian Drouin, the commander of 1 Canadian Air Division/Canadian NORAD Region. “The RCAF’s history is an integral part of the history of Canada as a whole.

“We are proud of the tradition of excellence that the men and women of the RCAF have demonstrated in service to Canada, and we look forward to continuing this legacy in the years to come.”
