Tustin Hangar Uses

The Tustin Hangars have seen a variety of uses over their lifetimes. Temporary uses such as filming, events, and storage have been the most frequent since MCAS Tustin closed in 1999. In the past, major films such as Austin Powers (1997), Pearl Harbor (2000), and Star Trek (2009) utilized these buildings because of their unique size and architecture.

The City of Tustin currently rents out the South Hangar (near the District) for temporary uses on a case-by-case basis. The North Hangar (near Veterans Sports Park) is not usable at this time. While the City is open to any and all rental proposals, not all uses can or will be approved.

The City hopes to expand the use of this amazing building for filming and other temporary uses. In recent years, major companies have used the South Hangar including:

  • Acura
  • Audi
  • Chevrolet
  • Disney
  • Goodyear
  • Mazda
  • H&M
  • Lexus
  • Lincoln
  • Nike
  • Tesla
  • Little Caesars
