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!
