The Friends of Ontario Airport is one of the most unique organizations in aviation. The Friends is a non-profit organization founded in the early 1960’s by local community and business leaders who believed in the economic vitality of Ontario International Airport (ONT) and the crucial benefits it provides to the area’s transportation network.
As a nonpartisan, nonsectarian organization, the Friends of Ontario Airport unites people of all backgrounds into a special group with a common interest in aviation, and in the development and growth of ONT for the benefit of all persons.
The Friends play an important role in the airport community. They have taken a leadership role in informing the public of the aviation services available at ONT, seeking additional air carrier service, encouraging citizen support of the airport, and working with aviation industry officials toward the goal of making ONT one of the most convenient air transportation centers on the West Coast.
The Friends welcome membership from individuals, companies,public agencies and organizations who share their love of aviation and views on the essential need to support the growth of ONT.
Through membership and fundraising, the Friends help other friends in the community including Travelers Aid of the Inland Empire and disadvantaged children from the Hero Club in Ontario.
The Friends meet every other month at ONT to see old Friends, meet new Friends, and learn invaluable information about the aviation industry through guest speakers. The Friends also take behind-the-scenes tours of the airport and group field trips to other aviation related facilities in the area.
Individual dues are $15 per year. Company and organization dues are $25 per year. For more information on joining the Friends of Ontario Airport, call (909) 544-5360.
