We are the un-official Santa Monica Airport community website operated by non-pilot residents of Santa Monica. We believe that every kid deserves a chance to experience aviation and we strive to make planes (and pilots) available to as many kids as possible with our family events. Join our newsletter on this page to be the first to hear about our next events near you. We have successfully inspired over 1,000 families in Mar Vista, Venice, Culver City, Los Angeles, Santa Monica and the surrounding communities.
