Palomar Airport Expansion Comparisons

5697 Foot Runway                                                       5701 Foot Runway

Voluntary Flight Path                                                   Restricted Flight Path

24/7 Operating Hours                                                  Mandatory Quiet Hours:

Voluntary Quiet Hours‐(No Penalties)                        (11pm‐7am

Typical airplanes that regularly fly out of John Wayne include:
Boeing 737 * Airbus 320 * Boeing 757
An expanded Palomar Airport could support similar commercial airplanes under the approved master plan, slated to serve over 1 million passengers annually in and out of Palomar Airport, plus freight, air taxis, and business/private jets.
County’s Goal is to OFFLOAD San Diego International Airport …

If expanded, Palomar’s runway will be 4 feet shorter than John Wayne Airport! Palomar has VOLUNTARY quiet hours, nothing mandatory, and that will not change. FYI, John Wayne and San Diego have MANDATORY Quiet Hours.
Not only will air traffic increase at Palomar, but significantly LARGER PLANES will land and depart regularly 24/7!
None of this speaks to the ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS of Palomar Airport expansion…impacts affecting us, our kids, and our future…air quality, water quality impacted from runoff, traffic.
The new runway would be built over an old, unsealed, leaking landfill which currently burns off methane gas.
This expansion plan is for travel as we know it now. It does not in any way, take into consideration NEW TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION which will impact travel within the near future.
As we are sure you know, there is a large NEGATIVE IMPACT on the PROPERTY VALUE OF HOMES located near loud, busy, polluting airports.

South Vista Communities (SVC) opposes the new McClellan- Palomar Airport Master Plan Update and Supports the Citizens for a Friendly Airport’s legal action against this plan.
South Vista Communities supports Citizens for a Friendly Airport and its efforts to ensure that McClellan-Palomar Airport remains a community friendly airport.
[Approved July 11, 2019, SVC board meeting.]
Visit c4fa.org for more information about Citizens for a Friendly Airport, the lawsuits, and to donate.
