About Us


Flabob is the seventh oldest surviving airport in California.  Founded in 1925 as Riverside’s first civil airport, Flabob is a paradise for homebuilders, antiquers, and everyone devoted to sport and family aviation.  We’re a village of aviation nuts — “Flabobians” — stuck in a 40s and 50s time warp. 

"Inspiration through Aviation"



Aviation fascinates and motivates young people. To most of our youth today, an airport is a forbidden curiosity that can only be seen behind security fences. At Flabob, aviation is up close and personal. Our instructional programs provide many ways to turn a casual interest into lifelong learning, with hands on experience and dedicated training. Once these youngsters become captivated, they transform their curiosities into a strong-ever growing commitment while willingly accepting to learn more math, physics and history to feed their aviation habit.
