About Glendale Municipal Airport

The current Glendale Municipal Airport is actually the second airport to bear the name. The original Glendale Airport was located north of the intersection of West Olive and North 79th Avenues, and was constructed as a private airstrip serving a construction company. Renamed Air Haven in the 1960s, the airport served General Aviation with a 2,400-foot runway until the late 1980s, when the new (current) Glendale Municipal Airport was opened with its 7,150-foot runway. The longer runway allows for more traffic and larger aircraft, which greatly benefits the city of Glendale and General and Business Aviation all around.
