The San Carlos Airport is getting a lot of attention lately for a number of reasons.
- Our neighborhood is experiencing a large number of helicopter flights buzzing over our heads
- Surrounding communities are getting a lot of noise from Surf air a COMMERCIAL carrier operating out of a general aviation airport.
- General Aviation airports, to our knowledge, should not have scheduled commercial airline flights!
- General Aviation Airports allow the use of leaded gas.
Surf Air started operations sometime in 2013 and is causing all sorts of problems for local residential communities. They are a small commercial carrier operating at the airport at all hours of the day and night.
This is a new situation and lots of people all over the peninsula are getting upset about it because the commercial planes are flying low over many neighborhoods. Menlo Park and Palo Alto residents had a large showing at the last meeting complaining about the noise issue and Surf Air. San Carlos residents will have a chance to voice their concerns at the next meeting in Redwood City on September 14th at 6PM:
Town Hall Meeting in the City of Redwood City
