Watsonville airport is surrounded by noise sensitive areas. As pilots we have an obligation to fly safely and with as little noise impact on our neighbors as possible. By using your airplane’s quietest departure techniques and procedures we can achieve that goal.

The following organizations endorse these noise abatement procedures:

  • City of Watsonville
  • Experimental Aircraft Association, Chapter 119
  • Monterey Bay 99s (International Organization of Women Pilots)
  • Watsonville Pilots Association
