Flying to Perris... Anyone have any experiences getting models through SNA? That looks like the closest airport. And I can get a direct flight on United. I have no experience with this airport. And it can't be worse than LAX.

Mike,

The closest airport is Ontario (ONT) and I've had great luck going in and out of there with a lot of equipment/models. It's my preferred airport when heading to Edwards for flight tests. I do anything to avoid LAX Unfortunately they don't have any direct flights from the east coast.

United tends to go through Denver, American via DFW.

United (continental) and there are direct flights from EWR which is what I normally use. Not much available to ONT.

SNA (John Wayne) vs LAX


John Wayne Airport is much smaller than LAX (three terminals) but has good parking fairly efficient services, excellent access to the freeways. Check out Southwest for favorable rates on baggage. Ontario is closer but there may not be as many travel options into there.

Not to mention the fun factor of SNA and its 5,000' runway...with the carrier landings and the 50 degree takeoff AOA.
