Leaseweb, one of the largest providers of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosting solutions with more than 80,000 dedicated servers under management and a broad portfolio of cloud hosting solutions available, will be sponsoring the annual Manassas Airshow again – on May 4, 2019. The airshow will take place at the Manassas Regional Airport.
It is the third year in a row that Leaseweb is sponsoring this airshow in the state of Virginia where one of their US data centers is located. Last year, Leaseweb sponsored an airshow that took place at Texel island in the Netherlands, an event that was joined by HostingJounalist.com editor-in-chief Koen Stegeman.
Aviation is actually in Leaseweb’s DNA, as the company’s founders Con Zwinkels and Laurens Rosenthal used to be airline pilots when they started the company. Leaseweb also has its own aerobatics plane which is used to take customers and partners ‘to the cloud.’ Half a year ago, our editor-in-chief took the opportunity to enjoy a flight at this aerobatics plane.

The airshow in Manassas will feature aerial demonstrations by the U.S. Air Force, The Flying Circus Wingwalkers, 3rd Dimension Parachute Team and more.
“When pilots are flying, there is no room for error,” said Lex Boost, CEO of Leaseweb USA. “They have to have a laser focus and unwavering attention to precision in order to avoid the slightest slip up that could be catastrophic. At Leaseweb, we strive to offer the same expertise and approach to our customers which is why we’re excited to sponsor this show each year and feel right at home at the airfield. We are inspired by the pilots and hope to duplicate their attention to their craft and their mission of connecting people.”
The afternoon in Manassas will be filled with fun and entertainment for families from all around the Northern Virginia area. It also highlights the history of Leaseweb and it’s co-founders Con Zwinkels and Laurens Rosenthal.
“Working with Leaseweb as a partner over the years has ensured that the airshow is able to continue to give back to the community year after year,” said Kevin Rychlik, Manassas Airshow co-chairman. “They really understand the pilot’s mentality and are eager to share and learn from people in all facets of the aviation industry. Personally, I find it inspiring to spend time with all the amazing pilots and volunteers that join us each year and I know the Leaseweb team does, too.”
