Riverside Municipal Airport (Riverside Arlington Airport, decades ago) (IATA: RAL, ICAO: KRAL, FAA LID: RAL), is four miles (6 km) southwest of downtown Riverside, the county seat of Riverside County, California.[1]

Scheduled flights to Laughlin/Bullhead International Airport (Arizona) on Western Express Air ended when that airline ceased operations at the end of May 2007.[2]

Runway 9/27 was paved about 1956 and Bonanza Air Lines appeared soon after. Until 1969 it and successor Air West flew DC-3s and Fairchild F-27s to LAX, Las Vegas, Palm Springs and beyond. Golden West Airlines served Riverside during the 1970s with nonstop and direct de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otters to LAX.

Riverside Municipal Airport has been home to Civil Air Patrol Squadron 5 since 2005.

"FedEx Express donated a Boeing 727-200F to California Baptist University for its new aviation science program. The aircraft will be on permanent display at the airport and will provide a working laboratory for aviation science students." The aircraft, N266FE (cn 21672/1538), is a Boeing 727-233/Adv(F). A video of its arrival on January 10, 2013 can be found here.[3]

The crosswind runway, RWY 16-34, is suited for smaller aircraft. Runway 34 has a Precision Approach Path Indicator.
