Why do so many aircraft from SMO and VNY Train in Oxnard on weekends?

Santa Monica Municipal code prohibits any weekend touch and go training from SMO.

Van Nuys Airport was undergoing runway reconstruction but was reopened on August 8, 2022

https://www.dailynews.com/2022/08/08/van-nuys-airport-opens-a-rebuilt-runway-and-officials-celebrate-the-chaos-of-thriving-business/

Why are so many of these Training Aircraft from the 1960s and 1970s and the flight schools lease them?

Because individuals and companies can make a good financial return and tax write-off, purchasing used aircraft from the 1970s and leasing them back to flight schools

A used 1976 CESSNA 172N SKYHAWK costs around $60,000
