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.
Thank you for your attendance! Our team is tremendously enthusiastic to share the sights and sounds of freedom that make our nation proud!
