SMO Reports Fewer Jets, More Helicopters

By Mary Grady | March 21, 2018

The operators of Santa Monica Airport shortened the sole runway in
December, but the airport’s data
https://www.smgov.net/uploadedFiles/...mpar ison.pdf
for February shows that while jet operations were down 80 percent
compared to the 2016-17 average, helicopter and turboprop operations
both increased by about 40 percent. Piston operations remained about
the same, with a slight 2 percent drop. Overall, the total takeoffs
and landings were down just over 1 percent for the month, compared to
the 2016-17 average. “Perhaps jet setters are choosing other ways to
beat the traffic over the 405,” noted the local Malibu Times. The
runway was shortened from 5,000 to 3,500 feet.

The city has said it plans to close the airport by the end of 2028.
NBAA is challenging that decision in the courts. Oral arguments in
that case are set for May 14 in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
NBAA has said it hopes ultimately the courts will force the city to
restore the runway to its original length

The remaining jets must be using surplus navy aircraft carrier catapults
Those hobbyists are just switching modes, since its all paid for by corporate money, i.e. cable subscriber fees and movie tickets.
