Help Your Business by Helping Us

If your business needs extra publicity or a tax break, consider a sponsorship with the Pacific Coast Air Museum.

In return for either a one-time donation or a longer-term agreement to provide funds, services, or in-kind donations for a specific PCAM initiative, we can offer your business some unique exposure opportunities.

The Pacific Coast Air Museum is a community resource, and is home to a large collection of classic aircraft. The Museum attracts customers over a broad geographic area. These are the same potential customers who need to know about your business and what it can do for them.Depending on the level of your contribution, we can…

  • Add links to your company website on the Museum website, newsletter, email, and other locations online
  • Add your company description to printed and online materials
  • Include mention of your company name and slogan in verbal announcements at events
  • Provide booth or pavilion space at selected PCAM events
  • Allow company representatives to make short presentations at PCAM events
  • Develop other promotional ideas. Let us know what you’d like to do.
  • Wings Over Wine Country Air Show: Our annual Air Show attracts between 15,000 and 20,000 visitors over two days. All promotional opportunities above are available for the Air Show as well.
