How is the Palomar Airport Association just like Santa Claus?
We Preserve the
The Palomar Airport Association is a non-profit (501(c)(3)) all-volunteer organization created to preserve the freedom to fly by promoting communication, aviation safety, and education for pilots, non-pilots, press and policy makers, by supporting events and activities that will keep General Aviation accessible to all.
Our members are pilots, student pilots, fixed base operators and travelers who fly out of Palomar Airport. Together, we speak with one voice to airport management, government regulators and the FAA.
We Serve our community
We have a guest speaker each month on the second Wednesday at 5:30 pm. We keep ourselves current and aware — then we get social and meet-n-mingle! We don’t meet in December — but our Santas fly!
Voluntary noise abatement program
Palomar Airport’s “Fly Friendly” Noise Abatement Plan.
As part of the Carlsbad Community, our pilots are committed to a “Fly Friendly” policy. Weather and traffic permitting, we ask pilots to maintain a 250° heading after departure until 1/2 mile past the coast.
