Take flight towards a grand day at the Fullerton Municipal Airport as the biannual event, Airport Day flies back in on May 10 for a fun-filled day showcasing all the great services the airport provides the community.

The lesser known airport in Orange County has origins that can be traced back to 1913 and behind it’s gates shows the fruit of its growth. Not only does it service airplanes and helicopters; it hosts schools for aviation flight trainings and air combat trainings among other things.


Guests can attend the event for free and will be able to tour vintage aircrafts and public safety vehicles and of course enjoy helicopter and planes rides.

There will also be games and activities for children and adults, raffles, informational booths and food vendors.


Fullerton Municipal Airport Manager, Branden O’ Reilly is among the Fullerton airport staff, event committees and volunteers that work to make the event possible for the community.

“We want to let people know we are here and we’re planning on making it an annual event,” O’Reilly said.
