The Southern California Logistics Airport

The airport is far north of Air Base Road (Air Expressway). While certain streets and roads at SCLA are open to the public, most business and industrial sectors are not. There are no planned tours available.

History of SCLA

The old George Air Force Base (GAFB) is now the Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA). The GAFB was closed in December 1992.

The SCLA’s immediate predecessor, the Southern California International Airport, opened in October 1994, shortly after the Air Force signed a lease for the old installation. In February 1995, the FAA issued the airport a Part 139 Certificate to service passenger and cargo operations.
