There are three major commercial airports within 100 miles of Edwards. Los Angeles International, located west of Interstate 405, one hour and 45 minutes south of Edwards (about 90 miles), is one of the world’s busiest airports, and traffic congestion in the vicinity is often a factor to consider. The Bob Hope Airport, in Burbank, is an hour and a half (about 90 miles) south of the base along State Highway 14 and Interstate 5.
Ontario International Airport, about two hours south (about 110 miles) in San Bernardino County off Interstate 15, is a less congested means of connecting to air travel. Newcomers arriving by air, rail or bus should ask for assistance from their sponsor. Late-night arrival by commercial means is not advised.
