McClellan-Palomar Airport

Small-aircraft owners and the businesses who service them say they are being unfairly pushed out of a California airport so more jets can move in. The fracas has erupted at Carlsbad’s McClellan-Palomar Airport over developer Palomar Airport Center’s plan for a $30 million upgrade of part of the airport. The $30 million may not be the problem — it’s the development that would replace old hangars housing about 100 small aircraft, half a dozen businesses and a historic restaurant with 19 new hangars designed … not for them. The 100 planes have to move by the end of the month and businesses occupying the space must be out by the end of September.
