Wings Over Water Leamington Team

Brad Krewench

Chief Executive Officer

Brad Krewench is the CEO and founder of Wings Over Water Leamington. For more than 15 years, he has been a performer at airshows all over North America and Europe with a team he is currently president of, Liberty Jump Team. Brad and his team launched Wings Over Windsor in 2020, unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic it was put on hold until now.

In addition to Liberty Jump Team, Brad also founded a veteran-oriented Non-Profit Organization aimed to ensure veterans that have outlived all friends and family are not forgotten around the holidays. Brad’s passion for this is driven by the fact that he is still a current serving Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces where he just entered his 21st year.

Brad’s love for the airshow industry is certainly evident, and with his passion for giving back to the community, he is the perfect fit for this role.
