Council members Toni Momberger and Paul Barich conducted a Coffee with the Council meeting with the community on Saturday, June 29th. The community meeting was well attended by airport tenants. There were some meaningful discussions that were primarily centered around the airport. The discussion helped all understand issues and possible paths forward. A big thank you to Council members Momberger and Barich for taking the time to meet with members of the community!
UPS will be conducting an evaluation flight at San Bernardino, Intl. The flight is scheduled for Wednesday, June 19th between 1700 and 2100 local and will involve several approaches to runways 6 and 24. Per Captain David Zamiska, UPS, the runway 24 approaches were designed to avoid the traffic pattern at KREI and proximal terrain while enabling a stabilized approach, as per UPS Standard Operating Procedures.
Captain David Zamiska has shared their number one goal in designing these approaches is to enhance safety for arrivals into runway 24 at KSBD, while providing adequate separation from KREI operations. UPS aircraft may be seen operating south, east and north of KREI during the evaluation. The altitudes should not conflict with KREI traffic.
This has been a common sight at Redlands Airport lately. There have been some brave young lads paragliding through the traffic pattern at Redlands Airport risking their lives and the lives of pilots using the airport so they can strut their stuff to their pals at the brewery. On Sunday 4-21 there were at least 3 close calls between paragliders and planes. If you fly paragliders please avoid the airspace over the airport. Its not worth the risk and it may be illegal too!
Please be cognizant of hangars and aircraft south of the run-up area for Runway 26. Prop wash can blow dirt and debris in open hangars and can cause costly damage to aircraft. Please be courteous and face your aircraft east (preferred) or west during run up.
