Ocean Ridge Airport needs
your help
Ocean Ridge Airport is located a mile from the Pacific Ocean, and is 940 feet above sea level. An old postcard declares that is sits "above the fog, beyond the smog".

The CA Department of Transportation informed the airport owners that needed repairs are needed to fingerpost AA standards. An airport association had been formed with the goal of raising the necessary resources. If the needed funds are not raised, this historic airport could be closed.

The Bay Bombers Squadron fly at the FDFI
At the recent Father's Day Fly-In, the Bay Bomber Squadron flew in a formation display. The Bay Bombers are a team pilots flying in precision to preform in the afternoon air show.

The team 5 aircraft, determined by the organizers needs and RedStar volunteers include multiple passes in front of the audience in varied military formation configurations. They preformed the "Finger-Four", , "Echelon" and the "Diamond",formation, all maneuvers that are unique to the RedStars performance.
This year marks the return of the Father's Day Fly-in at Columbia Airport in California.

Thanks to Titus Gall, owner of Tower Tech, a 48 year tradition has continued.

Last year the Father's Day Fly-in was scaled back due to federal budget cuts in the Federal Aviation Administration.

This year the FAA could not guarantee that they would provide air traffic control service.
Our rural airports in most cases are time capsule to an earlier time. Most have not change much over the years. They are not like the major airports that have commercial flights. Rural airports feel much like traveling back in time.

In the gold country, Highway 49 is the major highway along the western slope of the Sierra. The "Forty-niners" roots trace the path traveler took searching for gold. Our gold country is living history and you can explore the many building along your way.
