SafeLaunch is proud to bring our interactive Flights Above Addiction exhibit back to the Long Beach Airport's award winning Festival of Flight. Youth ages 5 and up will be painting their dreams on DJ-- the all-white Cessna 182-- and preparing to launch into a healthy life without the use of alcohol or other drugs.
No tickets are required. The popular free event is returning with aircraft on static display, live music, food and beer trucks, activities for kids and helicopter rides for purchase.
Approximately 10,000 attendees are expected to attend the outdoor event between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Taxiway E, located on the west end of the airfield at 3590 East Wardlow Road.
Attendees are advised to bring water, wear sensible shoes and be prepared to be outdoors, rain or shine. Coolers will not be allowed, and bags will be subject to search. Service animals will be permitted, but pets will not.
Limited free parking will be available at the corner of East Wardlow Road and Globemaster Way. Alternate modes of transportation, such as cycling, carpooling, ride-sharing and public transportation, are highly encouraged. Bicycle parking also will be available.
