Bringing Back Tradition


Santa Maria Airport has a rich history of air shows, but three years ago this tradition was lost due to military cut backs, which limited the support of military  aircraft at airshows. A few key people at Santa Maria Airport decided there is no better time than now to reinvigorate the local airshow. With tons of support from United States and Canadian Armed Forces, we have built an amazing schedule of flying and static displays for this year’s reimagined airshow.
