A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Corona Pilot’s Association at the Corona Municipal Airport. Funds will be used to make improvements to the airport property, facilities, and operations.
The airport is located in a natural flood plain next to a flood control dam, so it is often in danger of serious flooding during the winter months. Your money helps to maintain pumps that keep water out of the hangars and away from valuable equipment and aircraft.
It also allows us borrow the property for one weekend each year which necessitates closing the runway. We are very thankful to the Corona Pilot’s Association, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the City of Corona for allowing us to invade their airport and have an exciting and safe event year after year.
