LOS ANGELES (AP) - Eleven air traffic control towers at small airports throughout California are on the Federal Aviation Administration's list of nationwide facilities to be closed next month due to spending cuts.

The California closures revealed Friday range from Executive Airport in Sacramento to Brown Field in San Diego.

The closures will leave pilots to coordinate movements by themselves.

Also on the list are Castle Airport in Merced County, Salinas Municipal in Monterey County, Fullerton Municipal in Orange County and Oxnard Airport in Ventura County.

Two control towers in Riverside County - Riverside Municipal and Ramona - are on the list.

Towers will also be shuttered at Victorville's Southern California Logistics Airport in San Bernardino County, Whiteman Airport in Los Angeles and Gen. William J. Fox Airfield in northern Los Angeles County.
