Taking to the Skies
Sacramento Region, CA (MPG) – It is time to get your tickets for the big show! The California Capital Airshow (CCA) will take to the skies on September 9 and 10 at Mather Airport, and tickets are now available.
“The California Capital Airshow is a full-sensory experience,” said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the California Capital Airshow. “We’re excited to bring the Sacramento region two full days of non-stop entertainment and unparalleled access to the world of aeronautics and aviation.”
The California Capital Airshow illuminates a century of American aviation and ingenuity with miles of aircraft, from the spine-tingling civilian and military jet performances including the Patriots Jet team, U.S. Navy F-18 tactical demonstration, U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight starring the A-10 Thunderbolt II, world-class aerobatics, barnstorming, warbirds, and more.
In preparation for this massive family-friendly festival, the Airshow has launched a new website, CaliforniaCapitalAirshow.com, to provide attendees a preview of what to expect both in the air and on the ground.
“Exploring exciting displays and interactive exhibits as well as pilot meet-and-greets are a great way to start the day,” Brewer explained. “Attendees will want to be on site and ready for the action before noon, when in-air demonstrations and fly-bys begin or all things shiny, fast and loud take to the skies.”
New for 2017 is the National Aviation Heritage Invitational (NAHI) competition, updated premium venue chalets, a Kid's Stage, and so much more than just what's roaring across the skies.
The Airshow is presented by Sacramento County in partnership with the City of Rancho Cordova. The Airshow runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day

Established in 2004, the annual California Capital Airshow uses the power and magic of flight to entertain and amaze tens of thousands of attendees every September at historic Mather Airport for one of the largest and most prestigious demonstrations of a century of military and civilian aircraft on display and in the sky.
