Visit the Local Area

 

Southern California is a required destination for aviators and aviation buffs of all kinds.  Why not make Flabob your headquarters for your Southern California visit?  If the budget will allow it, stay at the beautiful and historic Mission Inn nearby in downtown Riverside.  Even if you don’t stay there, drop in and see the Famous Flyers Wall, just outside the Aviators’ Chapel.

Riverside boasts many other fine hotels in all price levels.  Listings can be found at the Riverside Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car will deliver a car to Flabob — (951) 710-5125‎.

With your headquarters airport and hotel arranged, drive or fly to Chino Airport for a visit to the Planes of Fame Air Museum, the Yanks Air Museum, and the 475th Fighter Group Museum.

Nearby March Air Reserve Base, with a rich history back to its founding in 1917, has the superb March Field Air Museum and the associated P-38 Museum.

Less than an hour’s scenic drive and an even shorter flight is Palm Springs Air Museum.  Or travel the other direction to Santa Paula Airport and its Aviation Museum of Santa Paula, with a stop in Upland at Cable Airport.

If these aren’t enough, or if your travel party includes some whose primary interests lie elsewhere than in aviation, it is not possible to run out of interesting things to do in Southern California.  Make Flabob your home base, hang out at the historic cafe, and get all the advice you’ll ever need.  Who knows, some of it may even be good advice.
