This entailed holding the biggest, baddest party of the year right on the University Airport tarmac. The ["SOS" club] used to charter out ["Unitrans"] buses to pick up ["Freshmen"] and take them to the party. They would also rent out a U-Haul truck and fill it with kegs. Fortunately, this tradition stopped after ["SOS"] was threatened that they would be kicked off ["campus"] if the shenanigans continued.<br> - * This is a really bad idea. Please, if you want a really crazy party, please do it somewhere else. This not only endangers the partiers (it's their own choice, so I don't care all that much), but also possibly innocent pilots and their passengers. Planes are free to land at Davis at any time, and even for a normal flight at night, this could pose a serious hazard. However, if the pilot is trying to make an emergency landing at Davis (not as odd as it may sound), this party idea could have fatal consequences. If a pilot can't land on the runway, they very well may crash. Depending on the state of the plane and the fuel available, once a plane is on final approach for the runway, that crash could even be into the crowd of partiers. If a VFR (non-instrument) pilot was slated to land at another local airport that is blocked by bad weather (such as happened at Nut Tree in Vacaville a year or so back), Davis may well be one of their backup choices, and if they made some bad decisions, they may be coming in on a very empty tank. An IFR (instrument) pilot would probably just divert to Sac Intl. or Concord, but they are a small minority of the flying population. Most pilots will just go for the closest safe airport. I've flown into Davis at night before, and it would have been really upsetting (to say the least) to find the runway clogged with partiers (although, since it was never an emergency landing, hopefully the results would not have been fatal). I would fully support the police arresting the people involved with planning a party like that. --["Users/EricKlein"]<br> - * Yeah, no shit it was stupid, that's why it doesnt' happen anymore. Perhaps when it was still an annual event, the UCD airport wasn't getting as much traffic. Sorry, I'm a wee bit inebriated. I'll delete this later. -["Users/AbbyLawson"]<br> - * Sorry, I didn't mean to come across so strongly. I was mostly responding to the "So if any other club is up for the job...?" comment. Flying is one of the few things that I actually take really seriously. --["Users/EricKlein"]<br> - * Hey don't worry about it. I meant the line as a joke!

In fact, many airports actually have a designated parking lot/park area where people can sit and watch the planes. I think someone was just being a bit of a prick (not really the cop, who was probably just doing his job, but the jerk who called to report you). Seriously.

There are no plans to bring back the airport party, for obvious safety reasons.<br> + * This is a really bad idea. Please, if you want a really crazy party, please do it somewhere else. This not only endangers the partiers (it's their own choice, so I don't care all that much), but also possibly innocent pilots and their passengers. Planes are free to land at Davis at any time, and even for a normal flight at night, this could pose a serious hazard. However, if the pilot is trying to make an emergency landing at Davis (not as odd as it may sound), this party idea could have fatal consequences. If a pilot can't land on the runway, they very well may crash. Depending on the state of the plane and the fuel available, once a plane is on final approach for the runway, that crash could even be into the crowd of partiers. If a VFR (non-instrument) pilot was slated to land at another local airport that is blocked by bad weather (such as happened at Nut Tree in Vacaville a year or so back), Davis may well be one of their backup choices, and if they made some bad decisions, they may be coming in on a very empty tank. An IFR (instrument) pilot would probably just divert to Sac Intl. or Concord, but they are a small minority of the flying population. Most pilots will just go for the closest safe airport. I've flown into Davis at night before, and it would have been really upsetting (to say the least) to find the runway clogged with partiers (although, since it was never an emergency landing, hopefully the results would not have been fatal). I would fully support the police arresting the people involved with planning a party like that. --["EricKlein"]<br> + * Yeah, no shit it was stupid, that's why it doesnt' happen anymore.

In fact, many airports actually have a designated parking lot/park area where people can sit and watch the planes. I think someone was just being a bit of a prick (not really the cop, who was probably just doing his job, but the jerk who called to report you). Seriously.

You can park by the bee center and walk right out onto a closed section of road between a field and the dirt end of the runway field.
