Portage la Prairie, often referred to as Southport Aerospace
Center, is where Canadian military basic flying training takes
place. As common these days, the programme has been outsourced
to a civil company, Allied Wings, which took over all
CH-139s (Bell 206B-3) and a number CH-146s (Bell 412CF)
from the Canadian Forces, hence we refer to these with their
Canadian military designations. Almost the entire fl eet of Allied
Wings was present during this Appreciation Day, which
was open to the general public, replacing a previously planned
Open House. Entrance was free, and not surprisingly, the public
came in great numbers. Decent shots of static aircraft were
hard to make, with the public allowed to have a close look in the
aircraft. The furthest runway was in use for the flying display,
which was hampered by backlight during most of the display.
The second flight line was off-bounds to the public. Besides
the aircraft mentioned above, many Grob 120 gliders of Allied
Wings were also seen.
