A great alternative airport for many student pilots to learn to spot traffic in the pattern. KPAO is home to one of the largest traffic hot spots for pattern work with a short runway. Palo Alto's Air traffic controllers are some of the nicest controllers on the west side of the bay. If you're in the area I highly recommend doing a few patterns at KPAO.
