Helpful Tips:

Pilots don't fly without a checklist, why should you? Use this checklist of helpful tips to optimize your Airshow experience:

  • Bring beach chairs or a beach towel for seating
  • Pacific Airshow does not publish an official schedule for our performances. We only list the performers on our website in no particular order. We hope attendees will be surprised and delighted without knowing what’s up next!
  • Pacific Airshow will take place on September 30-October 2, 2022. This free event is open to the public all three days. The flying takes place from 11:00 AM - 4:30 PM daily. The STEM/Education exhibits and beach + street festival is open all day, the whole weekend. The festival will remain open on Friday until 9 pm so that attendees can enjoy the community welcome event, too.
  • All three days of the airshow contain the full lineup of performers. Friday, September 30, 2022, is a “rehearsal day,” meaning the performances may change from the main show on Saturday and Sunday. If you can make it on Friday, parking will be easier and the crowds smaller than Saturday and Sunday.
  • Show Center is located on the beach across from The Waterfront Beach Resort (Hilton) at Huntington St. and Pacific Coast Highway. With an aerial performance box of more than 1 mile long, anywhere along the beach North or South of this location will be a great spot to view the show!
  • The Show center will also feature upgraded seating, and Airshow vendors providing food, beverage, and souvenirs.
  • Be prepared for traffic delays
  • Obey all posted parking signs. The last thing you want after a fun day is a parking ticket.
