The effects of COVID will continue until 2021 with another cancellation, this time for the entire coming year.

Military officials around the world love to show their extreme skills in many areas, perhaps especially at public air shows.

However, the pandemic has resulted in the cancellation of almost all public events in Canada, including sporting events, trade shows, exhibitions, conferences, air shows and, of course, military participation in public events.

The hope was that the pandemic would be under control and activities would resume over the next year.

Unfortunately, the Canadian Armed Forces announced today that one of their very popular high-level demonstration teams will cancel all of their events in 2021.

In a press release today, the Canadian Forces announced that the 2021 Skyhawks parachute team performance season had been canceled « due to public health and other considerations related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. ». .

The release notes state: “Assembling the team is a complex and difficult undertaking. Team members are selected at the beginning of the year and fully trained before the start of the season to ensure the highest level of professionalism and competence so that they can safely perform complex parachute maneuvers. ‘
