Nearly all of the planned high-flying action has never been seen in the Sacramento region.

The program will include Such acts including The Horsemen, flying three F-86 Sabre Jets, five-time national aerobatic champion, Kirby Chambliss, the Red Bull Air Force wing suit flyers, Franklin's Flying Circus Dracula and the Rise of Vacul, Greg Shelton and Ashley Battles barnstorming and wing walking act, and the Indy Boys. Additionally, CCA is excited for the return of aerobatic daredevils, Michael Goulian and John Klatt Airshows.

"We are proud to be one of the few shows in the nation this year with a military jet demonstration team," said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the California Capital Airshow.

"We have a stellar line up planned, non-stop action, and more interactive activities than ever before, specifically for teens and young children," Brewer continued. "Once inside the airshow gates, the young and the young-at-heart can come alive with imagination and possibilities. A day at the airshow could literally change a young persons' view of their education and inspire them to look beyond the horizon and know that they too can be a part of history in their own way."

As part of its community relations, the non-profit organization has awarded over 80 scholarships to deserving students from our region with an interest in aviation, aerospace, aeronautics and related fields.

The CCA will be all things "shiny, fast and loud" for all ages. Tickets are now available online and can be easily purchased at the Airshow Website,
