Pearland Regional Airport (ICAO: KLVJ, FAA LID: LVJ) is in Brazoria County, Texas, near Pearland in Greater Houston, 17 miles (27 km) south of Downtown Houston. The airport and FBO is managed by Texas Aviation Partners, LLC. It was formerly Clover Field.[2]

Most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but Pearland Regional Airport is LVJ to the FAA and has no IATA code.[3]

It was in the Pearland city limits from November 27, 2017 until March 26, 2018.

Facilities[edit]

The airport covers 450 acres (180 ha); its single runway, 14/32, is 4,313 x 75 ft (1315 x 23 m) concrete. In the year ending May 30, 2000 the airport had 87,125 aircraft operations, average 238 per day: 99.7% general aviation and 0.3% air taxi. 175 aircraft were then based at the airport: 94% single-engine, 2% multi-engine and 4% helicopter.[1]

History[edit]

The airport opened in 1950 and is owned by Clover Acquisition Corporation.[4]

In April 2010 a small single-engine plane took off from Pearland Regional Airport and crashed shortly thereafter in Friendswood, about a mile south of the airport. The pilot was killed.[5]

The land with the airport, "Area L", is an unincorporated area;[6] it was annexed by the City of Pearland on November 27, 2017.[7] However, in March 2018 the Pearland city council voted to deannex the territory.[8] It was de-annexed effective March 26, 2018.[7]
