Hanford Municipal Airport (ICAO: KHJO, FAA LID: HJO), formerly O18, is a mile (1.6 km) southeast of Hanford, in Kings County, California.[1]

The airport covers 132 acres (53 ha) with one asphalt runway (14/32), 75 ft × 5,175 ft (23 m × 1,577 m).[1]

In the year ending March 29, 2007 the airport had 28,500 aircraft operations, average 78 per day, all general aviation. 75 aircraft are based at this airport: 85% single engine and 15% multi-engine.[1]

The doppler weather radar, part of NEXRAD, serves the southern Central Valley of California counties from Merced to the north, to Kern to the south.[3]
