At age 81, Gord’s hope is to promote aviation and inspire young people to enter a career in aviation. He would also like to inspire those pilots who are advancing in age to continue to fly.
About to turn 82, Gord has decided to finally hang up his spurs……..so his last airshow is CIAS on the Toronto waterfront September 2,3 and 4 2023.
Gord’s aerobatic display is tight, right in front of you, fast moving and graceful with the largest airplane ever used in World Aerobatic Championships. The YAK 50 Prototype (serial number 01) was hand built at the Yakovlev Design Bureau in Moscow and first flew in June of 1972, 3 years before any of the 312 production aircraft.
