Airports Update 3/18/2020

March 18, 2020 13:00

With all the ongoing uncertainty, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what is going on with the County Airports.

We continue to staff the airports to ensure they remain open and operational.  Airport staff members are on-site at Reid-Hillview seven days a week between 0800-1800 with intermittent coverage at San Martin Airport.  As part of the daily activities, operations staff routinely inspecting the entire airport, including the twice-daily airfield inspections and multiple daily drive-throughs of the aircraft parking areas.     

In addition, the FAA plans to continue regular staffing in the Reid-Hillview air traffic control tower.  Several of the on-airport businesses are still available too, providing fuel and aircraft maintenance.    

While we have closed the terminal building to the public, you may still reach airport staff via telephone or email using the contact information listed below.  Please keep in mind that the accounting staff are working a reduced schedule and are available on a limited time-frame.

COVID-19 Updates

The County's Public Health website is a great source for information on COVID-19, including the March 16, 2020 Shelter in Place Order of the Health Office ​which can be read here.  Please take a moment to review the information.​

Reid-Hillview Redevelopment Study

The second Reid-Hillview redevelopment study public meeting, which was scheduled for this evening, has been postponed to a future date.  You will receive a notification when a new date has been selected.  More information can be found on the project website:

San Martin Gate Code

The gate access code for the San Martin airport has been changed and will be sent out under a separate email to all San Martin Airport tenants.  Currently, both the new and old codes work.  Beginning on April 1, the old code will be removed and you must have the new code to operate the gate.
