85 Years and Still Flying
Santa Paula Airport Celebrates a Milestone
Based at Santa Paula are not only the usual fleet of modern light aircraft, but also a collection of some of the most interesting examples of flying history. At Santa Paula you might see anything from a 1920’s de Havilland Gypsy Moth to a full aerobatic Pitts Special — and just about everything in between.
Have a budding Charles Lindbergh in your family? Check out the Young Eagles Program. Since 1992 the good folks at the Experimental Aircraft Association have been introducing young aviators to the wonders of flight.
Ever want to fly aerobatics like Patty Wagstaff (or just go for a plain plane ride)? CP Aviation has a full range of offerings from the sedate to the thrilling.
Those with a taste for history can visit the Santa Paula Aviation Museum.
The first Sunday of every month is open house at Santa Paula Airport. The public is invited to visit and participate in a unique aviation experience.
The airport and museum are located at 800 E. Santa Maria St., Santa Paula.
