On behalf of the men and women who serve and work at Naval Air Facility El Centro, I invite you to our 48th annual air show. It is our honor and privilege to host this free event, which features a wide variety of military and civilian flight performances that are sure to thrill any aviation enthusiast. The flight line will also feature static displays of past and present aircraft, a car show, vendors with concessions and air show memorabilia, and plenty of activities for families to enjoy. Explore the flight line and its many attractions, or just sit back and enjoy the show.
We are privileged to have called El Centro and the Imperial Valley home for over 70 years, and we are proud of the superb relationship we share with the surrounding communities in the Imperial Valley. While the great flying weather in El Centro plays a crucial role in the training we conduct, it is the outstanding support of our Imperial Valley community that is the real key to our continued success. It is your patriotic support, patient understanding, and hospitality that enable us to "train like we fight,” and the air show is one small way to thank you for your unwavering support of the base and our personnel.
Spectacular flying, static displays, souvenirs and concessions – there is no better way to spend a day with family and friends, and we truly hope you join us to enjoy the 2018 NAF El Centro Air Show.
