I assume most of the small planes buzzing by are just for the enjoyment of the flyers - but for me on the ground it's just a lot of unpleasant noise - I wish they would stay away from inhabited areas.

Are you saying that the Palo Alto Airport is busier than San José International? That's pretty hard to believe, even if the definition of busy means take-offs and landings without regard to passenger and crew numbers.
