The purpose of the Catalina Air Show is to continue the tradition of an aeronautic themed weekend festival on an annual basis to educate the Avalon youth and the general public about Catalina’s unique aviation history.
Utilizing vintage, and specialty aircraft, this event will bring spectators of all ages to Santa Catalina Island for the weekend. Vacationers, boaters, pilots and aviation enthusiasts will all have their eyes in the sky as they view the areal display just off the Avalon breakwater. Aircraft displays located at the Airport-in-the-Sky and in Avalon will allow spectators the opportunity to visually inspect the aircraft. Street fair booths with an aeronautical theme will line Front Street.
The 2013 Scheyden Catalina Air Show will have twelve air show performers and two static displays to wow aviation lovers of all ages, including Red Bull helicopter pilot Chuck Aaron‘s performance.
