Santa Monica: KSMO

Santa Monica is a towered airport located in Class Delta (D) airspace just north of Los Angeles International Airport.  The airport has a single runway 4,973ft long and aligned 03/21. The airfield dates back to post World War One and was the “home field” for the Douglas Aircraft Company that produced the DC-2, DC-3, DC-4, DC5, DC-6, DC-7 and a few other aircraft during World War Two. For a number of years the airport has been a point of contention with the city and is planned to permanently close in 2028.
