Tours of the main flight line are periodically available. Reservations in advance are required, and may be made by calling the airport administration office (661-824-2433) or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Out of curiosity, I just called the phone number and was told the procedure remains the same despite what's indicated above:
Maybe the airport manager realized it wasn't working that way and backed down on it.
-Charge is $5 per person payable to the staff member conducting the tour (a nice gratuity will probably enhance your experience
|Quoting BigOrange (Reply 14):|
You pay for the tour at the end, so the gratuity doesn't make any difference.
The drivers have to take a set route, because of insurance reasons, but it's still worth doing. I gave the driver a tip equal to the tour cost, because I felt that if this ever became a commercial tour the cost would probably increase to 4 times that amount, plus the fuelers don't get paid that much anyway!
