Flying makes the trip as fun as the destination! There are so many fun destinations and so much to see along the way! Take a weekend ski trip to Big Bear and fly into the snow covered mountains, or fly to Catalina for a weekend camping trip. Many people find that flying can also be very convenient for business trips as well.

Career

Flying is an exciting career with many opportunities. Air travel is constantly growing and so is private air travel. In the coming years there will be a huge demand for pilots as the pilots now begin to retire. From flying small commuter planes, charter services to flying the big commercial jets, there are many different types of flying opportunities depending on what fits you best. Instructing can also be a very rewarding job and a lot of fun!

Community

The aviation community is a small group of tight knit people. The airport is a great place to meet new people that also have a passion for flying. There are also many fun flying events and all kinds of meetings for pilots that want to continue their education. "Hangar talk" at the airport is always fun where pilots of all backgrounds share their fun or exciting flying stories.
