Los Alamitos Army Airfield

About

Opened in 1941, Los Alamitos was originally a Naval Reserve Air Base and then in 1943, a Naval Air Station. During World War II it was responsible for training aviation cadets and maintenance of fleet aircraft. The base was used for training of naval aviators up until 1973, when ownership transferred from the Navy to the Army, and the base was renamed Los Alamitos Army Airfield.

Today Los Alamitos is the headquarters of the 63rd Regional Support Command and is the home of the California Army National Guard's 40th Infantry Division.

Mission Statement: 
Los Al is a strategic asset located in a key area on the West Coast of the United States and a vital spot in southern California. With the dwindling military presence in California, this airfield’s significance is greatly increased. Los Alamitos is positioned to support the military and a variety of other agencies. This valuable installation with its world class runways offers national, state and local authorities an important embarkation/debarkation terminal to support training, deployments, emergencies, mobilizations, disasters, exercises, various other contingencies, and compliments DoD power projection operations.
