Compton Airport

Only a few years after the advent of the automobile, the citizens of the area witnessed another history-making event. On January 10, 1910, the first national aviation meet in the United States opened on Dominquez Hill, just south of Compton.  The conference lasted for 10 days and was repeated in 1912. On both occasions, local residents had a first-hand view of the activities, witnessing flights by America’s pioneer aviators, including Glenn Curtiss, Glenn Martin, Paulhan Willard, the Wright brothers and Ray Knabenshue, pilot of the first dirigible.

The Compton Airport opened on May 10, 1924.  Located at 961 Alondra Boulevard, the airport offers flight training, has accommodations for more than 200 planes, and is home to several aviation clubs.  The airport hosts a yearly Air Fair, which is a popular event among youth and adults alike.

Another featured attraction on site is Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum, a unique compilation of a living interactive museum, youth programs, and adult flight school. The museum features pictures, a flight simulator, antique aircrafts, and lectures from surviving members of the Tuskegee Airmen. Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum is also home to Positive Vibration/Aviation Explorers After School Youth Flight Training Programs, Aero Squad, flight school for adults, and the Skycap Café.

Museum tours are free of charge and include guided tours of the facility, aircraft, and airport. Lunch and discounted helicopter and airplane rides can be arranged for a small charge.

Hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. daily. Call (310) 618-1155 in advance for tours.
