Let's pull together. Ottawa Airport. September 14, 2013. 10 am to 4 pm.

Plane Pull Challenge

The Plane Pull 8, our annual fundraiser, was held on September 14th, 2013. It was a huge success: we were able to raise $ 80,000 ! This year’s proceeds were shared equally between Project Clear Skies, the Airport Authority charitable giving program, and the Sens Foundation.

What’s the Plane Pull Challenge? It’s simple: teams of 15 to 20 adults literally pull a plane (for Plane Pull 8, it was an 80,000 lb Embraer E-190), over a distance of 12 feet, as fast as they can!

The Plane Pull is more than just a pull: it’s an occasion for team building, for socializing, for kids to play and have fun with the many exhibits we have on-site for them, but more importantly, it’s a day during which all proceeds go to help our community.

Do people really pull a plane? Check out these videos from previous events and see for yourself.
