This year’s airshow includes aerobatic performances from classic warbirds from the CAF, military aircraft, experimental aircraft, antique cars and motorcycles, War Veteran’s Tent, WWII re-enactment camp, helicopter and airplane rides, VIP Chalet tent, as well as a variety of food and street vendors.

The Wings Over Camarillo Airshow has historically been about warbirds, aviation history, veterans, cool aircraft, cool cars and an awesome air show – a fun day for SoCal residents, aviation lovers and families. The STEM Pavilion, sponsored by California Lutheran University, highlights what is new in aviation and aerospace, and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields. It a place to see Drones and UAVs fly, see robotics in action, build a Lego airport, learn how airplanes fly and fold and test fly your own paper airplane.

Kids of all ages were also invited to take flight with kidSTREAM Children’s Museum! KidSTREAM is Ventura County’s emerging children’s museum. Children and their grown-ups were invited to create all sorts of flying objects to test fly in kidSTREAM’s “flight lab”.

Wings Over Camarillo is presented by Camarillo Wings Association (CWA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. CWA promotes aviation and its heritage, while inspiring youth with aviation related programs, education and leadership opportunities.
