San Jose Airport Diagram

It includes northwestern Santa Clara County (San Jose) and the bay regions of Alameda and San Mateo counties.

It was nicknamed based on the silicon that is used in computer semiconductors. Electronics and computer industries began springing up there as computers were being born in the mid-20th century.

Palo Alto, home of Stanford University, is considered its intellectual center. It is where, in a garage in 1938, that Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started their company.

That was when the area became a draw for other inventors and scientists in the computer and technology industries.

Land that had once been covered with vast orchards of apricots, almonds, cherries, plums and walnuts – just about any fruit tree could be grown there – was slowly turned into houses, shopping centers and other businesses as more and more technology companies and industrial parks were built in the 1950s and 1960s. Until then, it had been the world’s largest producer and packer of fruit.

Its evolution continues as more and more actual labor jobs are moved overseas and the Silicon Valley company headquarters are dedicated more and more to research and development. That means workers earn higher wages.

The biggest of the big companies – including Apple, Google, eBay, Intel, Cisco, and Adobe – are all located in Silicon Valley.

Aviation, Silicon Valley and billionaires

California has always been a big market for small planes. The state is so vast; the terrain so mountainous that it’s almost impossible and almost always arduous to drive from place to place.

The growth of Silicon Valley intensified the need for airport landing and hangar space.

As San Francisco International and Oakland International Airport run out of space, San Jose has become one of the fastest growing airports in the United States.

In fact, when Google founders Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt, who reportedly have eight private jets, including a converted 767, decided they needed their own airport, the operators of their aircraft, Blue City Holdings LLC, invested $82 million to establish an FBO at SJC.

They partnered with Signature Flight Support to build the fixed base operation that has an executive terminal and 240,000 square feet of hangar space.

While its primary purpose was to be used by Google executives, it is also available to others who want to land or charter a business jet to or out of San Jose International.

It joins competitor Atlantic Aviation, which has long been a fixed base operator at the airport.

In May 2018, the San Jose Mercury News reported, based on the latest billionaires’ census from Wealth-X,, that 14 new Bay Area-based people joined the ranks of billionaires in 2017, making it home to 73 billionaires, the highest number after New York and Hong Kong. Some 143 billionaires in the world got rich in the technology sector.

That’s a lot of private business jets.
