Did you know there are more than 150 different tenants that rent and work out of the Santa Barbara Airport? Welcome to SBA's new Tenant Spotlight series, where we highlight some of the diverse people and businesses contributing to Santa Barbara County, the aviation community, and beyond!

Meet two long-time tenants of SBA: Above All Aviation and Atlantic Aviation. These businesses have been partners of SBA for 13 and 15 years respectively, and have both recently relocated their services to new buildings on the property.
