Runway 8-26 is Officially OPEN!


Runway 8/26 is open for day/night operations as of 3:40 pm Friday, October 19, 2018.

Here’s what they are saying:

“Thanks Mike!

Please send my accolades along to the construction crews as well as “Our Gang” who have been absolutely amazing to work around through this project.

From the air, a beautiful thing to behold, on the ground… makes you drool with wishes to land on it.”


Mike said: “It’s a beautiful runway, we can use it, but there are a couple things to tighten up”.

You have a day/night runway in the same configuration as it was on March 4. Lighting is pilot controlled via 122.7/CTAF…low-3 clicks, med-5 clicks, hi-7.

If you see anything that concerns you, let me know ASAP. Otherwise, enjoy!!

Proud of our team that delivered your new runway a day early and met each milestone!!

THANK YOU ALL for your patience.
