It is no secret that the greater Los Angeles area covers a vast amount of space and traffic can make seemingly short distances take a long time to drive. As a student, you can explore the many attractions the region has to offer – from hiking wilderness trails, to winter sports, hot air ballooning, zip-lining, to NASCAR – Inland Empire has all this and much more.

The history of the Flabob Airport has been to provide education through aviation. We are thrilled to be their partner in this pursuit. Founded in 1925, Flabob Airport is Riverside’s first civil airport and the seventh oldest surviving airport in California.  Flabob has long been home to “Education through Aviation” and remains a time-honored paradise for homebuilders, antiquers, and everyone devoted to sport and family aviation.
