Surf Air is increasing the number of flights into San Carlos from other Airports to 20 per day effective December 9th. That's 20 inbound and 20 outbound per day. Go to their web site and look under schedule. San Carlos Airport was designed as a general aviation airport not for Commercial Airlines. At 10,000 lbs with a 53 ft. wingspan on a single engine aircraft there should be concern about noise and Safety. According to Surf Air they can operate as many flights as they want into San Carlos, first 4, then 6, then 10, now 20, then unlimited.

I just saw and Heard that plane this morning, That is one noisy airplane and I wasn't anywhere close to being underneath it. Perhaps a bay approach to Petes Harbor would help.

Surfair can operate as many flights into San Carlos as the air traffic control system will allow. The approach path is unlikely to change, at least for instrument approaches. They are designed for maximum safety and terrain avoidance.
Mr. Stogner: I'm not sure what plane you were hearing, but in my experience the Beechcraft King Air that operates in and out of San Carlos is much noisier than the Surfair Pilatus.
