Open Cockpit: December 8 at Santa Fly-In
Look inside these historic aircraft!
Open Cockpit during Santa Fly-In: December 8
The December 2018 Open Cockpit weekend takes place Saturday December 8 only, during our annual Santa Fly-In event!
Admission is FREE for everyone this very special day!
You'll get to look inside historic aircraft, sit with Santa, and have a lot more Holiday fun!
Our Open Cockpit aircraft are the T-37 Tweet jet trainer, and the HU-16E Albatross amphibian.
During Santa Fly-In, Santa Claus flies in to the Pacific Coast Air Museum on a helicopter to greet all the kids and listen to their Christmas wishes. There are lots of additional things to see and do during this very popular event, so find out more about Santa Fly-In.
Open Cockpit weekends at the Pacific Coast Air Museum are your chance to get up close to selected aircraft and look inside. We raise the canopies and open the doors to give you an unobstructed view so you can see what a genuine fighter plane, attack plane, transport, helicopter, or other type is like from the inside!
