The 19th Annual Apple Valley Airshow and NAPA® Auto Parts Car Show returns after a two-year hiatus on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Apple Valley Airport featuring extreme aerobatics from legendary pilots, skydivers, paratroopers, warbirds and military fly-bys. Vintage planes, classic cars and military vehicles will also be on display.

Along with the eyes in-the-sky excitement, the STEM Expo tent will offer the true aviation learning experience for all ages to enjoy where eventgoers can learn to fly a plane, build a plane or rocket, and test their “Top Gun” flying skills in a flight simulator at no additional cost. The airshow provides scholarships for local students in the STEM field.

On-hand will be test and aerobatic pilot Chuck Coleman in his Extra 300L performing some of the same aerobatics he trained the actors in for “Top Gun: Maverick” movie. Spectators will have the opportunity to meet all the pilots and get autographs after their performances.

The NAPA® Auto Parts Car Show “Show and Shine” along with Inglis Classics “Hot Rod Hotties” will rev up the oldies but goodies experience in classic cars. Spectators are encouraged to stop by the NAPA® booth and pick up a form so they can vote for your favorite car.

Eventgoers will be entertained with live music throughout the day by the band Modd Rodds. The event is sponsored by San Bernardino County Department of Airports. There will be a variety of food and souvenir booths as well as a beer garden hosted by the Rotary Club of Apple Valley.
