There were three landing fields in the Culver City area; all three commercial. There were eight landings by pilots who cited Culver City as their home base. One of the pilots, James B. Dickson, was the corporate pilot for Harry Culver, the California real estate developer and Register passenger whose namesake was Culver City. Two landings arrived from Culver City, and five cited it as their final destination.

At right, from this REFERENCE, pages 43-44, a description of Culver City airfields, ca. 1931.

Below, from Google Earth, a view of the location specified by the lat/long coordinates cited in the 1937 airfield description. The location is now a neighborhood of mixed residential and commercial, with no remnants of an airfield, or even an "L"-shaped property.
