The Perfect Team: Education & the Miramar Air Show
Each year, the school liaison offers the education community the chance to personally experience the Marine Corps. All student groups K-12 are cordially invited to visit the MCAS Miramar Air Show for an opportunity to learn about the military and the world of aviation in a unique, hands-on approach. This experience includes the chance to view and tour static display aircraft and the opportunity to meet and greet military and civilian aviators. It also includes the fortune to watch spectacular performances by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF), AV-8B Harrier, F-35 Lightning and the U.S. Army Golden Knights to name a few!
