California Capital Airshow

We are pleased to once again participate in the California Capital Airshow, on this the 100th Anniversary of Mather Airport.

With a spectacular fireworks display and the USAF Thunderbirds performing, the show promises to surpass its own high standards achieved over the years.

CAF SoCal warbirds, the AT-6 SNJ “290”, P51 D “ManO’War” and B25/PBJ “SemperFi” will be on display at the airshow.

Visitors can tour the interior of the PBJ bomber, talk with our crew and book rides on the SNJ and the P51 on show days.

As always, flight slots are limited and we encourage those interested to book their flights for the show ahead of time.

It’s an experience you won’t soon forget!

Minden Airshow

The US Navy Blue Angels may think they’re the featured event at the Minden-Tahoe Airshow in October, but our fans (including our beloved Blue Angels) would agree that the Hellcat and Bearcat tribute to the Blue Angels will be the real highlight of the show!

Additionaly, our P51D Mustang ManO’War will be present for static display.

Those wishing to enhance their airshow experience and get a personal connection to these venerable WWII era warbirds can do so with a flight aboard ManO’War.
If you missed us at the Truckee/Tahoe Airshow, here’s your final opportunity in 2018 to soar over the Sierras aboard the thoroughbred Mustang.
Flight times are limited and pre-booking your flight is highly encouraged.
