There were three landing fields in the Culver City area; all three commercial. There were eight landings by pilots who cited Culver City as their home base. One of the pilots, James B. Dickson, was the corporate pilot for Harry Culver, the California real estate developer and Register passenger whose namesake was Culver City. Two landings arrived from Culver City, and five cited it as their final destination.

At right, from this REFERENCE, pages 43-44, a description of Culver City airfields, ca. 1931.
