Ticket prices are $199 for the Aviator Beach Club and $59 for the Flight Line, and an early bird special discount is available now at $139 and $49, respectively.

The inaugural Breitling Huntington Beach Airshow will be the only beachfront airshow on the West Coast, and the first airshow held in Huntington Beach, California in over twenty years. Thousands are expected to attend to see first-hand the jaw-dropping jet stunts of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the Breitling Jet Team.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds perform an impressive hour-long demonstration featuring sharply choreographed routines that show F-16 Fighting Falcons wingtip to wingtip and give the crowd a glimpse of the exacting skills and capabilities possessed by these accomplished fighter pilots.

The flying aces of the Breitling Jet Team will showcase the fast and powerful L-39 Albatross aircrafts with precise and dramatic maneuvers. The team will round out their two-year tour of the United States with a final U.S. performance at the Huntington Beach Airshow.

Other performers include the Red Bull’s Kirby Chambliss, California’s own Bill Stein, US National Aerobatic Champion Mike Goulain, the Red Bull Air force skydive team, an F-18 Super Hornet demonstration, Douglas C-47 “Skytrain” and Jet Powered Waco Biplane Screamin’ Sasquatch.

The Breitling Huntington Beach Airshow will take place on October 22 – 23 with a practice day on the 21 and will include a variety of exciting aviation performances and vendors.
