For more than three-quarters of a century, Van Nuys Airport (VNY) has contributed to the rich history and economic vitality of the San Fernando Valley. Established in 1928 as a place where daring young aviators let their dreams take flight, the airport continues the legacy of courage, craftsmanship and community set forth by aviation’s early pioneers.
Today, as one of the world’s busiest general aviation airports and one of the largest employers in the San Fernando Valley, VNY serves a variety of private, corporate and government aviation needs. It is also home to fire, police, search and rescue and air ambulance flights that provide life-saving services to the region.
VNY’s many community and educational outreach programs reflect our commitment to balancing the needs of aviation interests with those of local residents and businesses. Our goals are to build stronger relationships with our neighbors, facilitate aviation-related career and training opportunities, and open the doors of the airport to people of all ages.
We invite you to explore the many programs we have to offer and to discover the airport is more than a place where aircraft take off and land. It is a valued resource to the community.
