This is directed at the bay area crowd, esp.
those based at SJC (Ed et al.): What is
going on at San Jose International as far as parking?
I noticed an entire set of GA hangars gone
when I flew in there earlier this week (presumably
part of the runway reconstruction). Where did they
move you - or have people been banished from the
More disturbingly, the transient parking fee
(for my measly little renta-C-152) was
$50 (!!!) per night!! This is an order
of magnitude higher than the last time
I flew in there - less than one year ago. I
suppose ACM, the Jet Center, & the operators
of the airport have conspired to gouge
general aviation. It is slimy that I wasn’t
even told of the fee when I left the plane
there (had I known, I would have hopped in
and flown it over to Reid-Hillview).
There’s my whiny moment of the week. Too
bad I’ll never be landing at KSJC again.
