50th Annual Air Show Saturday, March 14, 2020
On behalf of the men and women who proudly serve onboard Naval Air Facility El Centro, it is our honor and privilege to invite you to our 50th Anniversary Air Show! This truly exciting event is free and open to the general public! It will present a wide variety of military and civilian flight performances- guaranteed to thrill aviation enthusiasts and inspire new generations to come! Our flight line will also feature static displays of past and present aircraft, a car show, vendors with concessions, air show memorabilia, and plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy. We encourage you to explore the flight line, talk with the world’s finest pilots and maintenance professionals, take pictures, and bring home memories that last a lifetime!
Our team is privileged to call 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 our armed forces to "train like we fight”, and when required- to “fight like we train”. Our air show is just one small way to say THANK YOU for your unwavering support of the base and our personnel.
We are truly thrilled to invite you onboard NAF El Centro for our 50th Anniversary Air Show! There is no better way to spend a day with family and friends. So come out and join us! Relax, enjoy, and observe the sights and sounds of freedom that make our nation proud!
