The next destination for Orbx Northern California is KSQL San Carlos.
This busy GA airport is situated in the San Francisco Bay area. The airport sits in Silicon Valley and is located close to many well known tech companies, the most notable being Oracle. Given its proximity to the headquarters of Oracle,there has been speculation that the airport code of SQL is a humorous reference. In fact the airport was SQL many years before Software Development Laboratories became Oracle. The airport is also home to the Hiller Aviation Museum. The museum specializes in the history of Northern California aircraft as well as helicopter history. The museum was founded by Stanley Hiller Jr., who designed the world's first successful coaxial helicopter and produced a working model at the age of 17. The museum uses aviation as a gateway for people to embrace adventure and innovation and to explore how the physical world works and how the dream of flight is made into reality. KSQL is home to over 30 aviation related businesses and being ideally situated in the Bay area, is the perfect starting place (or destination for that matter) of your day trips.
