“Canada is a growing market for specialized and military aviation and remains a strong focus for us. We are proud to be exhibiting again at CANSEC this year, among Canada's leading edge defense and security companies,” said Benjamin Boehm, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Specialized and Amphibious Aircraft. “This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our array of products.
