Municipal Airports

Hi so I’m seeing many talk about these So-Called “Municipal Airports” and seen a lot of them in IF (e.g. Banning Municipal in SoCal near PSP). What’s the difference between these GA Airports and normal GA Airports?

From Wikipedia:

“A municipal airport is an airport owned by a city or municipality.”

Would an Air Force or coast guard base count?

@Lamborghini_Life… “GA Airport”? Not familiar with the term. Pls explain/expand the basis for this classification? Max

(FAA classifies airports by Class/ Letter Code., e.g.: a grate big sucker like LAX is a Class “B”. What Class is a GA Airport?)

“General Aviation”. It’s not a class of airport but it is referring to the General Aviation aircraft that use that airport

Northeast Regional Airport, Home to ViaAir (small new airline based out of CLT) and to Northrop Grumman where they produce the E-2 Hawkeyes! Frontier is coming in sometime next spring to restart up operations with flights to KPHL with an A320
