Open House Held On The Grounds Of The Last Remaining Military Airfield In The LA Area

Wings Wheels Rotors & Expo 2011, an annual open house and family event sponsored by the Los Alamitos Area Chamber of Commerce and the California National Guards Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB), has been set for October 23rd.  All the activities will take place on the flightline on Los Alamitos Army Airfield (KSLI).

Los Alamitos Army Airfield is the last remaining military airfield in the greater LA/Orange County areas with the longest runways in the OC. The JFTB is also the disaster support area for southern California. On display will be military aircraft, helicopters, and, warbirds, along with public safety, first responder and military equipment. Aircraft flyovers are planned including aircraft static displays.

Wings Wheels & Rotors will have various civilian and public safety helicopters with fire, police and military rotorcraft including some of the media aircraft seen daily on the air around SoCal. Along with the airplanes and warbirds are helicopter flights in civilian "choppers" for a small fee.
There will be free flights in general aviation airplanes by the Experimental Aircraft Association Young Eagles for youth between the ages of 8 and 17 years who are interested in flying and aviation.

The event will also feature a car show including custom cars, new autos, motorcycles, roadsters, antique vehicles and hot rods. Awards to be presented for best cars. There will be many events for the family at WWRE 2011 along with a Kids Korner.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the JFTB Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) funds to  support the armed forces personnel on the base.
