Noise Abatement Information - Last update 02/21/2015

MEDIUM

  Overview

Welcome to California’s Central Coast and Watsonville Municipal Airport!

Please note that Watsonville Airport is surrounded by noise sensitive areas.

Airport Management requests pilots fly safely and with as little noise impact on our neighbors as possible.

Runway 20 is the preferred calm wind runway. During late Spring and throughout the Summer, during daylight hours coastal stratus may preclude the safe use of Runway 20. Under these conditions pilots consider a right hand pattern for Runway 27 to avoid stratus.

Safety always supersedes noise abatement procedures. Always comply with air traffic control instructions and other safety considerations caused by weather or emergencies.
