Join us for the 34th annual
WEST COAST CUB FLY-IN
Lompoc Airport (LPC)
Lompoc, California
July 13, 14 & 15, 2018

The West Coast Cub Fly-in is celebrated across the nation as one of the top fly-ins for historic aircraft, and more than 100 planes are expected to participate this year.

The West Coast Cub Fly-in is a fun family-friendly event held each year during the summer at the Lompoc Airport.  The event is free for spectators and made possible by local EAA Chapter 275, Explore Lompoc, the City of Lompoc, the Lompoc Airport, and all of the wonderful West Coast Cub Fly-in volunteers!

This event is not just for pilots – but also welcomes spectators.
Visitors can walk among the aircraft, observe the flying events, and interact with the pilots. Among the popular events are pilot proficiency contests held on Saturday afternoon.

In addition, we’ll have T-SHIRTS and SOUVENIRS on hand for your shopping pleasure, and tasty FOOD and BEVERAGES also available.
Check out the schedule below to see what’s on the menu!
