Businesses & Attractions at South County Airport
San Martin CA
Skydive Silicon Valley
A great place for high octane adventure in the caring hands of an experienced team.
Skydive Silicon Valley operates in the South end of the airport, towards the former location of the animal shelter. They load the plane at the far corner of the airport fence and land in the large field adjacent to that fence. Due to potential windy conditions and proximity of Highway 101, all skydivers are held to an exceptionally stringent standard of safety & awareness, especially when compared to other dropzones' restrictions. It's worth the eye-rolls and grumblings though, because safety's #1 no matter how much fun you're having.
Wings of History Aircraft Museum
Aviation museum with vintage planes, scale models, engines & memorabilia on display.
Great small town museum full of history and volunteers eagerly ready to answer all questions. A must see for aviation enthusiasts! A hidden local gem full of history, and also one that holds exhibits that are of surprisingly high caliber. Great for kids and adults alike.
