Educating and Engaging with Pilots on Good Neighbor Procedures
We’re proud to be the home base of many partners that provide essential services to our community. Pilots and aircraft based at SBD make it possible for rapid response to emergencies in our neighborhoods and region. They also ensure necessary supplies are delivered to our front door steps in a timely manner.
Educating pilots on best practices for operating at SBD is key to reducing noise and enhancing quality of life for our neighbors. Our recently published preferred arrival and departure procedures videos are the latest tool in SBD’s toolbox to help achieve this. The videos raise pilots’ awareness of residential areas, requesting they avoid them to the greatest extent possible, and describe preferred landing and takeoff procedures for SBD.
Watch the videos here and see for yourself the preferred “highways in the sky” that SBD requests pilots to fly.
