Resources Added For Pilot Awareness and Flying Friendly

The Department of Airports continues to provide resources that pilots can use to increase awareness of the noise sensitive uses in the vicinity of our airports. New animated maps are now included to assist pilots in visualizing the recommended traffic patterns and the location of noise sensitive uses.

Says Deputy Director Dave Nafie, “We want to promote a tighter traffic pattern. Climb quickly to pattern altitude and keep the downwind leg in close, especially at Oxnard Airport where the desired track is along or north of Wooley Road. This really makes a difference to the residents and promotes a Fly Friendly approach to our culture.”
