In north San Diego county, 18 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and adjacent to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, lies Fallbrook. It is a rather unique unincorporated community with its own small airport, Fallbrook Community Airpark. Prime lease holder on the Airpark was Fallbrook Air Service, owned and operated by the Aberle family, who moved to Fallbrook in 1968. On the Airpark at that time were approximately 15 airplanes, one 10 unit hangar building and lots of weeds. Many LEAN years were to pass before black ink hit the ledger. Today there are over 150 aircraft based here.
