The Hangar at Lompoc Airport

Lompoc Airport (KLPC) is more than just a landing strip- it’s a community of friends with a common passion for aviation. Lompoc is located north of Santa Barbara by 35 nautical miles, in California’s beautiful Central Coast. Come join us for flying adventures, airport BBQ’s & viewing the occasional rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base (Pad SLC-3E is visible from the hangar).

About René

Train with a living legend- BASI Chief Pilot René began his career as a Naval Aviator in the United States Marine Corps, flying the F-4 Phantom and the A-4 Skyhawk. After his time in the service, he spent more than three decades in the commercial aviation industry as an airline pilot, retiring as a Boeing 777 Captain recently. His passion is sharing his knowledge with the next generation of pilots– specifically, YOU!

Whether flying with René, or any of his carefully selected instructors, you will be learning from the best- all are dedicated professional pilots, with thousands of hours of operational airline (Part 121) or military experience. Our curriculum focuses on safety, proficiency, and personal performance.
