Corona Municipal Airport covers 98 acres (40 ha) and has one asphaltrunway, (7/25), 3,200 x 60 ft (975 x 18 m).
In 2004 the airport had 68,000 aircraft operations, average 186 per day, all general aviation. 414 aircraft sre based at the airport: 90% single engine, 6% multi-engine, 2% helicopters and 1% ultralight.
On January 21, 2008 two private planes collided in Corona killing five people, including one on the ground. The collision occurred about a mile away from the Corona Municipal Airport above Serfas Club Drive. The crash wreckage left debris strewn along a commercial strip near the 91 Freeway. Eyewitnesses claim to see an explosion in the air and two different bodies fall from the sky. The aircraft involved were both single-engine Cessnas, a two-seat Cessna150 and a four-seat Cessna 172. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board, local Corona Police Detectives as well as the Federal Aviation Administration began their probe the following day. As of January 23 a cause for the accident is yet to be determined.
The crash began a debate about the safety of the Corona Municipal Airport as it does not have an operating Control Tower. The city of Corona has had seven fatal aircraft accidents since 1998.
On July 26, 2008 at approximately 13:47 local time, a baby blue and white 1947 Ercoupestalled upon takeoff when turning crosswind and crashed into the forest on the southwest side of the airport. Eyewitnesses say that the two elderly pilots had minor injuries, with one of them bleeding from his right cheek where the yoke struck him upon impact. Both are alive, but the airplane is said to have sustained considerable damage.
