About Ventura County Department of Airports
The County of Ventura Department of Airports includes the Camarillo Airport (CMA) and the Oxnard Airport.
CMA, the former Oxnard Air Force Base, was established in the early 1950's for coastal defense. A variety of military aircraft operated here until 1969 when the base was deactivated. After a surplus process, CMA officially opened as a General Aviation airport in 1976. It occupies approximately 650 acres of land and is owned and operated by the County of Ventura in partnership with the City of Camarillo through a Joint Powers Authority (JPA).
Today CMA is the proud home of over 600 general aviation aircraft and there are between 150,000 and 200,000 take offs and landings per year. The airport community includes several aviation businesses providing flight instruction (fixed wing and helicopter), aircraft maintenance, charter and storage. CMA is home to the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), the Ventura County 99's, and an Ultralight Airpark. There is also an Airport Business Park that includes several County agencies, and a variety of businesses.
CMA provides nearly $200 million in positive economic benefit to the local communit...y and supports over 1,000 jobs. The Federal Aviation Administration recently categorized CMA as a National Asset. It certainly is a jewel to our local community and the County of Ventura.
The Oxnard Airport is located on the coastal edge of the 200-square mile Oxnard Plain and a mile and a half from the coastline on the southwest corporate limits of the City of Oxnard. The airport is classified as a non-hub commercial service airport and is home for one full service fixed base operator providing services such as aircraft charters, aircraft maintenance, and pilot supplies. The airport also hosts several car rental agencies, and shuttle van service to Los Angeles International Airport.
