    The Inland Empire Wing (IEW) was formed as the "Inland Empire Wing" of the CAF. Its hangar is located in Hanger "S" on 6936 Flight Road at the Riverside Municipal Airport in Riverside, California. ?

The members and volunteers dedicate their efforts to a variety of local projects, such as the maintenance and restoration of WWII aircraft, memorial flights at special events, contribution of museum displays to educate the public, and providing support and a presence at Southern California air shows.

    The IEW presents monthly member gatherings and Hanger Days, plus annual fund raising events, such as this year's Wheels to Warbirds pancake breakfast and our appearances at air shows around the nation. ? We invite you to join us to share an interest in history, aviation and community education endeavors.
