Until about 1950, Burbank Airport (now known as Bob Hope Airport) served as the primary airport for Los Angeles.

General William J. Fox Airfield hosts the U.S. Forest Service "Fox Tanker Base" (at the east end of the airfield). Large numbers of "airtankers" (aircraft that drop aerial fire retardants) are able to assemble at this base, as well as "lead planes" (aircraft that lead airtankers over fires).

Los Angeles County Fire Department air operations are based at Whiteman Airport in Pacoima.
