Cable Air Show Ending? Thank the FAA

Cable AirshowFAA Control Tower Policy Could Force End Of The Event – The 2014 edition of the Cable Air Show at Cable Airport (KCCB) in Upland, CA may be the last, if the FAA does not reverse its policy of charging hefty fees for air traffic control tower services during such events.

Airport president Bob Cable said the airport has been billed $15,000 for air traffic control services for the 39th annual edition of the show. The event usually brings in about $30,000 to $40,000, which is all donated to aviation scholarships in the local community, according to a report in the Daily Bulletin.

Cable Airport Acts as Alternative to L.A./ONT

Comparing overhead photographs of Upland’s Cable Airport shows the enormous growth in the area since Dewey Cable started the place back in 1945. “Back then it was mostly brush and lemon groves,” said Bob Cable, Dewey’s grandson, and the third generation to run this privately owned airfield. Today, however, this well-run and tidy place at the foot of the mountains, acts as an alternative to the busy commercial Ontario airport nearby.
