Welcome to Big Bear!

Nestled in the San Bernardino mountain range, Big Bear Airport is the premier airport for those flying into the resorts of Big Bear Lake. Snow Summit, Bear Mountain and other destinations are just minutes away—which means it’s always a good time to visit.  Flight instructors and pilots will also find Big Bear Airport exciting for another reason: training. The airport is located 6,752 feet above sea level and provides an educational excursion just an hour’s flight from Los Angeles.  Whether you’re starting your vacation or finishing pilot certification, you’ll find Big Bear Airport the perfect place to make your adventures come true.

During the busy ski season, car rental reservations are highly recommended for pilots flying into Big Bear. The local taxi service may be slow due to heavy traffic. We have two car rentals agencies in Big Bear:
