Riverside Municipal Airport (IATA: RALICAO: KRALFAA LID: RAL), also known as Riverside Airport (and formerly as Riverside Arlington Airport), is a public airport located four miles (6 km) southwest of the central business district of Riverside, the county seat of Riverside County, California, United States.[1] The airport is located in the Inland Empire, a region with a population of over four million people.[2]

Scheduled service to Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport (Arizona) on Western Express Air was discontinued when that airline ceased operations at the end of May 2007.[3]

Riverside Municipal Airport since 2003 has been the home to Civil Air Patrol Squadron 5, California's largest squadron. Meeting every Tuesday night at 1900L.


Riverside Municipal Airport covers 525 acres (212 ha) and has two runways and one helipad:

  • Runway 9/27: 5,400 x 100 ft. (1,646 x 30 m), Surface: Asphalt
  • Runway 16/34: 2,850 x 48 ft. (869 x 15 m), Surface: Asphalt
  • Helipad H1: 60 x 60 ft. (18 x 18 m), Surface: Asphalt

Riverside Airport's full service runways feature ILS, GPS, and VOR approaches for all-weather arrivals and departures.

The main runway, RWY 9-27, accommodates Gulfstream V, Dassault Falcon 50, Bombardier Challenger, Cessna Citation X and similar business-class aircraft. The Airport's current Master Plan will lengthen this runway to 6,153 feet (1,875 m) in the near future. Runway 27 is also served by a Visual Approach Slope Indicator.

The crosswind runway, RWY 16-34, is suited for cabin-class aircraft and smaller in crosswind conditions from the north. Runway 34 is also served by a Precision Approach Path Indicator.
