Twentynine Palms Airport
Details

Twentynine Palms Airport (TNP) is the closest airport to the entrance of the fabulous Joshua Tree National Park. The airport traces its history to the training of the military pilots during World War II. After opening a training base known as Twentynine Palms Aviation Academy, the military created a series of small runways where gliders could land after training operations. The Airport is located in the close proximity to the Twentynine Palms United States Marine Corps base and its support activities.
