As most of you know, the County Airport Administration is working on an update to the Airports Business Plan for the County’s two airports. As part of the update effort, they have been hosting public input meetings. These meetings explain the process of updating the Business Plan. They will also listen to the audience’s thoughts and concerns. For more information on the Business Plan, the process for updating it, and questions asked during previous meetings, please visit their website: www.countyairports.org.
The third and final public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 1, 2018 starting at 6:30 PM at the Donald Meyer Elementary School, 1824 Daytona Dr., San Jose, CA 95122.
This meeting is the primary meeting for airport neighbors to provide input. We can expect some very different viewpoints from our neighbors. Please listen respectfully and carefully to all inputs.

The San Martin Runway will NOT be repaved today. The repaving has been pushed back again to an unknown date.
Checking NOTAMs before you fly to any airport is the very best way to stay on top of runway closures, unreliable weather systems, etc.
Congratulations to John Drewery who successfully completed his Private Pilot Check Ride this Saturday, October 28th! He worked with CFI Anton Sabev on this journey.
San Martin Airport’s only runway, 32/14, will be shut down for repaving on Wednesday, November 1.
As always, check NOTAMS before you fly!
