Filming & Photography
All commercial, non-profit and student filming, videography and photography activities on Airport property require prior review and approval of the Airport Director, a County of Orange permit and a permit fee. The permitting process requires a minimum of seven working days. Feature film or more complex shoots require at least 30 working days. Requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Areas of availability are very limited and filming is prohibited beyond the security checkpoints or on the airfield itself.
