Palmdale Regional PMD Airport Overview
Palmdale Regional Airport PMD is now a general aviation facility, located in the Antelope Valley, approximately 60 miles from downtown Los Angeles, and includes Edwards AFB, Plant 42. While commercial airline service ceased a few years ago, it is expected that the City Council will be successful in reinstating such service.
The airport features a modern 9,000 square-foot terminal capable of handling up to 300,000 passengers annually; however, at its height it only had an estimated 20,800 passengers a year.
According to AirNav - the Airport is open to the public for official business only. It is a military airport - civil use requires USAF approval & DD Form2400/01/02.
UPDATE: It seems that LAWA, the Los Angles-based operator, is finally losing grip on that airport, and the City of Palmdale will take over by year-end 2013. It already has formed the 'Palmdale Airport Authority' and is working on a new online airport site.
