Camarillo Air Show – Wings Over Camarillo
August 21 - August 22
Join California Aeronautical University at the 2021 Wings Over Camarillo Air Show! Meet with our team and learn how CAU can help you jumpstart your aviation career! As in years past, the University will team up with crowd-thrilling aerobatic pilot Vicky Benzing and bring the CAU Mobile Flight Experience to inspire youth about the excitement of aviation. CAU will also bring a special military tribute aircraft to the air show this year.
To honor our fallen military service members, the tribute aircraft is a Beechcraft Baron B55 with a patriotic paint job specifically designed to reflect the colors of and pay respect to the United States flag. The special design also contains the names of all military personnel who have given their lives in defense of our country since 9/11 – over 7,500 names. Guests of Wings Over Camarillo are invited to view this memorial aircraft on display up close!
“We’re excited to be participating in Wings Over Camarillo again this year,” says Matthew Johnston, President of CAU. “Whether you experience flight in our Mobile Flight Experience simulator bus, or watch Vicky Benzing soar majestically through the air in her Stearman, or reflect on those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, we have something for everyone this year.”
Mr. Matthew A. Johnston has over 23 years of experience serving various roles in education and is currently serving as the President of California Aeronautical University. He maintains memberships and is a supporting participant with several aviation promoting and advocacy associations including University Aviation Association (UAA), Regional Airline Association (RAA), AOPA, NBAA, and EAA with the Young Eagles program. He is proud of his collaboration with airlines, aviation businesses and individual aviation professionals who are working with him to develop California Aeronautical University as a leader in educating aviation professionals.
