Pilot Data

Sequim Valley Airport is located in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains. Consequently, Sequim has an average annual rainfall of seventeen inches or less and this gives the area the reputation of having a “blue hole” in the Northwest. This benefits the airport by providing conditions suitable for VFR approaches on most days of the year. Sequim has become a mecca for retirees of the aviation community as well as being a popular destination for recreational and business pilots.
