My wife and I departed Norfolk for North Island on 19 May and returned, via El Centro, 27 May. Flew a C-40 both ways. No problems getting on either flight, but that may not always be true.
Please see my (soon to be posted) trip report for more information.

Welcome to the Board!
If you have not yet done so, please familiarize yourself with JohnD's SpaceA Pages (link top left), the general layout of this site and the Search Function (magnifying glass at top center) of this site. Nearly all questions can be answered from those three sources. Having read thru the FAQs is a great start and I would suggest reading thru the other sections on JohnD's site as well.
In relation to your proposed trip, traveling SpaceA to/from Norfolk (or anywhere on the East Coast) to San Diego (or anywhere on the West Coast) in the summer will be very challenging. We try to avoid the Summer (15 May to 15 Sep) as this is typically one of the busiest times (Christmas (15 Dec-10 Jan) being the other) with a lot of competition for spacea. Please ensure that you are prepared to spend more time in terminals than you can imagine. Also be prepared for additional food, lodging and expensive, last minute commercial tickets should you be time restrained upon your attempted return.
As stated often on this site, experienced SPATS avoid Christmas and Summer travel whenever possible.
In sum, can it be done??..Yes, Just be mentally prepared for things to not go as smoothly as you might be expecting...and be pleasantly surprised when they work out.
Happy travels, John

Looking to take my family (wife and 2 kids) from Norfolk to San Diego (Class III) June 19 or so. Looks like there are typically several flights from Norfolk to San Diego and back. Any feedback/advice on this route greatly appreciated. Thanks, Garett
