San Bruno is a city in San Mateo County, California, located between South San Francisco and Millbrae with a population of 43,908 (as of the 2020 census). Though a mere 15 minutes from the legendarily foggy “City”, San Bruno basks in the sun, thanks to the gentle hills that border it and give it a distinctly Mediterranean microclimate, much of the time. The city has a strong tradition of aviation milestones.

San Bruno enjoys a very rich history, especially in aviation. In 1911, the aviator Eugene Ely made history when he took off from Tanforan (on the edge of town) and made a successful landing on the armored cruiser USS Pennsylvania anchored in San Francisco Bay, At the time, it was the first successful shipboard aircraft landing ever. Later in 1927, San Francisco International Airport was opened in San Bruno and famed aviator Charles Lindbergh paid the airport a visit during his national tour.
