Jacquie B and her Extra 300 monoplane coming to Quesnel SkyFest

Jacquie B has more than 2,500 flight hours and over 100 airshow performances under her belt

We are so excited to announce that Jacquie B is coming to Quesnel for SkyFest!

Most people start slowing down and preparing for retirement at age 50, but not Jacquie B. When she turned 50, it was time to realize her dream of becoming an airshow pilot!

Jacquie always loved to fly, but she discovered her passion when a friend took her for an aerobatic ride in a Pitts Special. After that first flight full of loops, rolls and tumbles, Jacquie knew she had found her calling!

Today, she has more than 2,500 flight hours and over 100 airshow performances under her belt, proving that it is never too late to follow your dreams!

She flew in competitions for several years before making her way to the airshow circuit. In 2010, she became the first female solo pilot to perform at the Al Ain Aerobatic Show in the United Arab Emirates.

Jacquie flies a stunning Extra 300 monoplane that can withstand up to 10 Gs of force and is designed for exceptional aerobatic performance. It is the world’s most successful performance and unlimited category aerobatic aircraft, used in competitions across the globe!

SkyFest returns to Quesnel this weekend (Aug. 2, 3 and 4) at the Quesnel Regional Airport! Get your tickets at or at the SkyFest office at the Quesnel Regional Airport, and follow #SkyFest on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on your favorite performers and a behind-the-scenes look at Quesnel’s International Airshow.
