Skydive operations are announced on the CTAF (122.725) and SOCAL 127.3 five minutes, two minutes and one minute prior to jumpers away.  Aircraft should not overfly the airport during these operations.  Aircraft arriving and departing should use the standard traffic pattern and follow all noise abatement procedures.  Parachutes land in the north fields adjacent to the runway and do not affect normal traffic pattern operations.

Aircraft operating on practice approaches in VFR conditions should use extreme caution to not overfly the airport during parachute operations and monitor the CTAF.  Parachutes operate north of the runway from the surface to 5,500 AGL.  Jump altitude is 13,000 feet MSL.

CAUTION: Parachuting operations over OKB sunrise to sunset daily

NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

In order to be a good neighbor, the Airport and the Community requests that you follow the recommended noise-abatement procedures.  Flight safety must supercede noise-mitigation procedures.  All FARs apply.  Click here for the latest information from the FAA.

Please avoid the following activities for noise abatement:

  • Touch-and-Goes are allowed.
  • Avoid training and practice VOR approaches during Church services each day 11 a.m. to 12 noon, and Sunday, all morning, until noon.
  • Please avoid full-power climb-outs on practice VOR missed approaches.

Please be vigilant for other aircraft.  Give plenty of time to orient yourself outside the pattern.  Non-Standard Traffic Pattern in use.  Expect intensive Shoreline and training traffic.  Faster aircraft will need to extend pattern.

See and be seen. Hear and be heard.

Announce your position. Use your radio.

RUNWAY 24

ARRIVALS

  • Right-Hand Traffic (Calm-wind runway)
  • Arrivals from the East
    • Cross over OKB at 2,000 ft. heading southwest.  Begin descent after crossing shoreline.  Turn north, continuing descent to traffic pattern altitude (TPA).  Turn inbound (east) when at TPA.  Cross over the Santa Margarita River and go direct to water tower.  Start 45 degree pattern entry directly over water tower.
  • Arrivals from North and South
    • Be at traffic pattern altitude (TPA), slightly offshore.  Cross over the Santa Margarita River and go direct to
      water tower.  Start 45 degree pattern entry directly over water tower.

DEPARTURES

  • Climb at best angle of climb (Vx) to 500 ft. Reduce power by 100 RPM or 1” MP if practical.  Follow the San Luis Rey River past the harbor before turning.  The most noise-sensitive area is along the north and south side of the San Luis Rey River from the Church, west to Interstate 5.  Please do not overfly this area and avoid flying over houses.  Use Highway 76 as a departure landmark by keeping it in close view under the left side of aircraft.

RUNWAY 6

ARRIVALS

  • Left-Hand Traffic
DEPARTURES
  • Climb at best angle of climb (Vx) to 500 ft. Bank left as early as practical to avoid school/hill. Follow San Luis
    Rey River to exit pattern. Reduce power by 100 RPM or 1” MP if practical. Pattern is the same but reversed. Upwind leg will need to be extended.
