2018 Air Show


Welcome to the NAF El Centro Airshow!
We are privileged to have called 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 us to "train like we fight,” and the air show is one small way to thank you for your unwavering support of the base and our personnel.

General Information (and some specific links)

As the winter home of the Blue Angels, the Naval Air Facility El Centro annual air show is the first show of their season, every year. Drawing a crowd of 10,000 - 20,000, it is the largest single-day event in the Imperial Valley.

The Naval Air Facility El Centro Air Show will take place on Saturday, March 10, 2018. General admission and parking are free.

The objective of this event is to keep the public informed of our military services preparedness, demonstrate modern weapons systems, enhance community relations, and promote recruiting.

Additionally, we have completely reworked our parking plan and will make every attempt to lessen delays while entering or leaving the Air Show.
