Abuse of San Clemente Island NALF (KNUC)

If you are aware, KNUC is one of the most crowded airports in Southern California. And many of those aircraft are civil.
But according to Wikipedia, KNUC is an USAF Base.


I think that KNUC should not be used as an commercial airport in IF either.

On Infinite Flight it serves as San Clemente International Airport, a main hub for the peanut gallery.

I think that the community must restrict civil jets at KNUC.

By the way, KNUC Is not an international airport

Good luck with that. The forum has tried to do it before but plans failed. San Clemente is officially an Intl. Airport.

well hello San Clemente International. Where there are commercial aircraft instead of military. Issue is that IF doesn’t have a big variety of military aircraft.

Reasons why KNUC is so crowded:


  • It’s located on an island which has a scenic approach.
  • Nonstop ATC service
  • Proximity to mainland Cal. And pilots can make pretty quick flights up to LAX or SAN.

I agree. The airport is too small for all these aircraft.

It isn’t just a playground thing. I’ve seen many people fly there on the Advanced server as well. I honestly have stopped caring.
