In 1925, there were schedule flights between San Diego and Los Angeles. Two years later, Charles Lindbergh had a test flight at an airfield near the current airport just before he went on his historic flight across the Atlantic Ocean. One year after his amazing flight, the leaders of San Diego decided to build an airport for the city. The new airport opened in 1928 and was named the San Diego Municipal Airport-Lindbergh Field. The airport was the first airport that was federally certified in the United States to receive seaplanes as well as land planes. In 1937, the United States Coast Guard had a base just across the way from the airport. During World War II, the Army Air Corps of the United States took control of the airport. In this time, part of the airport was renovated to receive bigger airplanes. After the city of San Diego regained control of the airport after World War II, the amount of air traffic grew. As growth continued, so did the number of terminals at the airport. Terminal 1 opened in 1967. The second terminal, Terminal 2, opened in 1979. About 15 years later, Terminal 2 received a renovation and expansion. A number of years later, the name of the airport was changed and was called the San Diego International Airport. Today, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority runs the airport.

Originally named Mines Field after a real estate agent who brokered the site's land deal, the facility was L.A.'s first municipal airport but not the first airfield to serve the Los Angeles area. Dominguez Field, at the present-day site of Cal State Dominguez Hills, hosted the first U.S. air show, and Rogers Airport at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue (then Crescent Avenue) hosted many air shows as well as passenger air service to San Francisco. But Charles Lindbergh's famous transatlantic flight in May 1927 convinced Los Angeles city leaders of the need for a permanent, municipal airport. With an improved runway and dedicated facilities, a city airport would encourage airmail and passenger traffic between Los Angeles and other aviation-friendly cities, while a permanent presence would allow airlines, maintenance companies, and other private enterprises to cluster around the site. In September 1927, Lindbergh himself, in Los Angeles on a nationwide victory lap, told a Coliseum crowd of roughly 60,000 that "airports are the most important factor in the development of aviation...I wish to say that if you expect to keep your city on the air map, it will be necessary to construct a municipal airport." Within months of Lindbergh's recommendation, the city had begun surveying suitable airport sites. At first, the city planned to open three municipal airports: one in the San Fernando Valley at Sesnon Field, one near downtown at Vail Field, and a third near Westchester and Inglewood at Mines Field. It soon became clear that maintaining three airports would be impractical, however, and the city decided upon one: Mines Field. On September 26, 1927, the city signed a ten-year lease for 640 acres, and L.A.'s first municipal airport was born.
LONG BEACH AIRPORT
4100 Donald Douglas Dr. Long Beach, CA 90808 (562) 570-2600
In 1919, local aviator Earl Daugherty opened a 20 acre flying field for his flight trainining school at "Chateau Thierry." Located at Bixby Road and Long Beach Boulevard, it opened on June 6, 1919. Interest in aviation grew and on July 16, 1920, the City of Long Beach contacted Daugherty about developing a 60 acre municipal flying field on land situated west of Long Beach Boulevard and south of Willow Street. It was here, when the field was dedicated on December 25, 26 and 27, 1920, that Amelia Earhart caught the flying bug and decided to become a pilot.
The airport is well situated halfway between the major business and tourism areas of both Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Currently, there are over 200 businesses located on airport property, including nearly 100 acres of mid-rise business park and hotel uses, several top-rate fixed base operators, and specialty aviation service companies, as well as Gulfstream Aerospace aircraft service centers.
Currently, Long Beach Airport covers 1,166 acres and has five runways, the longest being 10,000 feet. It is a hub of corporate activity as well as being one of the world's busiest airports in terms of general aviation activity. Scheduled airlines also provide passenger and cargo service. Owned and operated by the City of Long Beach, the Airport is an important part of the Long Beach community. The Airport is proud to be the partner of two Long Beach Unified Schools, Burcham Elementary and Burroughs Elementary. The Airport's volunteer tour program offers an invaluable learning experience. Each year, these tours give thousands of children and adults the opportunity to explore a major aviation transportation, manufacturing, and business center, which contributes significantly to the local economy.
ONTARIO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
2500 Terminal Way, Ontario, CA 91761 (909) 937-2700
The first Friends of Ontario Airport landed an airplane on a dirt patch near San Antonio Avenue and the Union Pacific railroad track. The aircraft was a Curtiss JN4 "Jenny" and the first airport was called Latimer Field, named after the orange-packing company next to the airstrip. The first Friends were Archie Delwood Mitchell, Waldo Waterman, Hugh Wolfe, Allan Couch, and several others. After the move from Latimer Field to the southwest corner of the current airport, the landing field became known as Ontario Airport for the first time. The first Ontario Airport was set up near the Union Pacific railroad track, and pilots gauged the direction and strength of the wind by observing the smoke from locomotives passing below.
