History[edit] Colonel C. S. Smith landed in an open field near the town of Compton in June 1924. Colonel Smith felt the field, owned by the local school board, would make an ideal airport location and negotiated for the airport's founding. Between 1924 and 1936 the airport and its land passed through several hands until Earl Woodley took over the lease in 1936. He purchased additional adjacent land to allow for a crosswind runway. During the war years of 1941 to 1946, civilian flying was severely restricted and the airport was used by the military as a truck depot. After the war, Mr Woodley resumed operations and eventually became owner of the land. When Mr Woodley died in 1962, the airport was threatened with closure when it was purchased by an investment company. Pilot groups, citizens, the mayor of Compton, and the entire Compton City Council encouraged the Board of Supervisors to condemn the land and allow the county to purchase it. In June 1966 the entire airport property of 77 acres was purchased for $2,948,883.[3]

Facilities[edit] Compton/Woodley Airport covers 77 acres (31 ha) and has two asphalt runways (7L/25R and 7R/25L), each 3,322 x 60 ft (1,013 x 18 m). In 2012 the airport had 66,000 general aviation aircraft operations, averaging about 180 per day. 175 aircraft are based at this airport: 151 single-engine aircraft, 14 multi-engine aircraft, 1 jet aircraft, 8 helicopters, and 1 glider.[1]

In popular culture[edit] The Compton Airport is mentioned in the opening bars of Dr. Dre's "Big Ego's" on his multi-platinum album 2001. Compton Airport is featured in Airline (U.S. TV series) episode 46[4] when Robin Petgrave,[5] the founder of the flight school Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum,[6][7] was delayed which eventually resulted in his giving a cast member's son a plane ride at Compton Airport with his flight school.
