What is there to see and do at First Sunday?
Each of the privately owned hangars in our Chain houses a variety of vintage aircraft and collections of various types, as well as other memorabilia from antique radios to racecars. Some hangars celebrate highlights of fascinating aviation careers, while others contain antique aircraft undergoing the process of restoration. Hangar owners or docents are available to answer questions. Aircraft owners display their antique aircraft, and vintage aircraft often fly in. Car clubs also frequently grace our taxiways on First Sunday, and several hangar owners also have beautiful vintage cars on display. You never quite know what you’ll see on First Sunday!
The local Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 723 offers free airplane rides to kids ages 8-17 through their “Young Eagles” program. It’s a great way to introduce your child to the thrill of aviation!
The Museum’s Home Hangar is currently under development as our permanent home base for the museum. In the meantime, it offers a wonderful variety of toys and apparel for the airplane buffs of all ages.
Santa Paula and the surrounding communities have a variety of interesting places to visit in beautiful surroundings. If you are looking for a fun getaway close to home, come stay the weekend in the beautiful Heritage Valley.
