The first one today is Y96, Goetz Co, in far north Onaway, Michigan, in da land of da Yoopers. If you're not steeped in Michigan lore, you probably were unaware that there are two kinds of Michganders, da Yoopers and da Trolls, however most of the latter don't realize they are Trolls, since it's a somewhat derogatory term mostly used by da Yoopers. Da Trolls, naturally, dey live below da bridge, eh? Most Trolls never venture north of da bridge, so mostly don't know they are Trolls. Trolls also comprise most of the Fudgies, a temporary title conferred upon tourists who frequent the fudge shops of Mackinac City, Mackinac Island and St. Ignace in high summer, which is locally defined as three weeks of bad skiing in August. By the way, "Mackinac" is properly pronounced as if it were spelled "Mackinaw". Had enough of Michigan culture? Me too - that's why I live in Florida - y'all - where the skiing is always bad.

Y96 has a single runway, 2,600 X 60, with a stub taxiway and a ramp and a half dozen buildings in FSX. There is no fuel pump, no tower, no published approaches but there is an NDB within easy snowmobiling distance.

The next airport is ETME, Eggebek Navy, in the German city of the same name. It's a reasonably big airfield but is typical of many military fields in FSX - few buildings, unlabeled taxiways, a DME on the field, no published approaches. They tend to look kind of bleak, unless you have a traffic program installed that dresses them up a little. Sometimes those include an AFCAD to provide enhanced parking, military AI traffic, and if you're lucky, a few additional buildings. Since we're documenting the stock versions, you get none of the above with this one.

Finally, we have LZIB, from the national capitals list leaving only eight more to finish it. This one is the airport serving Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. It has four runways, but two of them are grass strips, hard up against the two crossing paved runways. The big runways are a few hundred feet shy of 10,000' long but one is 197' wide - I assume that translates to something "round" in meters.

This field has a good sized ramp, three custom buildings and a robust taxiway network. It also has a handful of closed taxiways to add interest and a good assortment of navaids nearby, including an LOM and an LMM for each of the two ILSs. The taxiway labeling took me to a second plate and the lack of room for listing all the navaids forced a third plate, which contains those and also repeats most of the other text information from the main view.

The two new ones today were hardly worth bothering with, but at least they were easy to do. For the first one, 5TE4, if the airport name contains "Ranch", don't expect too much. Both of these made the cut by virtue of having a paved runway but neither has much else to back that up with. The other one is UG25 in Georgia, the eastern European Georgia, not the one north of Florida. They were both the luck of the draw and came from separate lists - they could just as easily have been major airports as the lists are randomized and each of the four lists I'm currently using contributes one airport, in a strict rotation.

The update today is a little more of a real airport, EGLC, London City. That was the oldest file in the collection, from November of 2009. The update adds some details that weren't in my original version, including magnetic variation, approaches, custom buildings and a few other minor things and I went to two plates because of taxiway labels. I might not have strictly needed to do that but I hated to clutter up the main view with them. Also, all current diagrams are from FSX - most of the early ones were from FS9 and though most are the same in all the basics, the earlier ones lack some of the detail of the FSX airports.

Maybe the list gods will cough up something more interesting tomorrow.

I just noticed it's clicked over to July. I need to start a new thread for these.

See the list above. I'm not hitting on all cylinders tonight and am foregoing the chatter about them.

Three days into the new month I realized I was still posting these updates into the June 2013 Updates thread. I've created the new thread for July and moved the errant July updates into it before posting, this, so they should still be in proper chronological order.

Don't laugh - you'll be old and subject to these "Senior Moments" too someday, if you're lucky.

KIGX, Williams, in Chapel Hill NC is a little one-runway (4,000') airport. It's paved, has a nearly full-length parallel taxiway, a nice little ramp, some published approaches and decent navaids fairly nearby thanks to Raleigh-Durham being not too far away. It's not towered but has a good set of frequencies published for most anything you'd need for VFR or IFR operations. Oddly, there are no buildings inside the airport fence in FSX.

ENDU, Bardufoss AB in Norway is also a single runway airfield, but is more like 8,000' long and is towered. There's an oddity in the navaids - there is an ILS for both ends; the one for runway 10 is Localizer only and runway 28 has glide slope equipment. However, the list of approaches in FSX has Localizer-only approaches to BOTH ends - no full ILS for Runway 28 as you might reasonably expect. I confirmed in FSX that the GS is in fact active and can be received on the published ILS frequency, but you won't be able to use the FS GPS to fly the full approach. Just when you think you've seen it all, MS has another curve ball.

This one went to two plates because of a fairly extensive taxiway system, all labeled.

The update today is EGLJ, Chalgrove, UK, originally diagrammed from FS9 in 2009. It hasn't changed much, but my standards have, so this plate adds navaids within 20 NM, magnetic variation and a few other things I was not including back then. I suspect it's military but not sure. It has three intersecting runways of varying lengths, from about 4,100' to nearly 6,000', all listed as 151' wide. There is an MS fuel pump but no buildings or any other visible niceties in FSX, including no taxiways at all. The gas pump is out in the grass in the triangle enclosed by the three runways. There are good navaids near to hand, but no published approaches. It's non-towered and only shows a Multicomm frequency.

OK, I understand now what's happened.  I originally posted 7/1, 7/2 and 7/3 in the June thread.  Once I realized the month had clicked over (don't laugh, you'll be old and retired someday too) I copied and pasted the posts from the June thread into the new July thread but had the forum editor set for plain text.  The truncated URLs came over verbatim and don't work.  Fixing them now.  The problem should be confined to those three date in the July thread.

 

John

 

EDIT:  I had the 7/4 link to EDNU Bardufoss AB wrong too, but for a different reason.  All fixed now.  Thanks for letting me know.

Three today, all new ones. Knocking another off the quickly diminishing national capitals list, BKPR is Pristina, in Serbia and Montenegro, according to the MS Airport Selection Menu. I believe that in the real world, it's more correctly in Kosovo now, but it's kind of hard to keep track of the score in that part of the world if you're not a tribal member there. Suffice to say, the airport diagram reflects what MS considered to be accurate circa 2006 - that's the best I can do.

It's a one-runway airport about 8,200' long. It's towered, lighted, has good navaids nearby and an ILS to one end. There are a handful of published approaches to guide you in if you're into flying the full approach using the MS GPS.

H35 is Clarksville Muni in the Arkansas town of the same name. It's one paved runway is about 4,500' long and has a half-length parallel taxiway and a fairly generous ramp for an airport of that kind and size. It's non-towered, but is lighted and has five approaches, including one that's a circle-to-land approach if the winds are strong across.

RJSK is Akita, Japan. It's in the 8,000' range and is towered and lighted. There's a full-length parallel taxiway and three ramps - guessing here, I'd say they are commercial, cargo and GA from the looks and properties. There's an ILS to one end and a few other approaches published as well.

Two of the new ones here and the update were actually done and posted at Mutley's Hangar a few days ago but I didn't get through the rest of the process - catching up now.

KNBG is New Orleans NAS, very near the Big Sleazy. It has two runways in a broad arrowhead configuration - not quite meeting but almost. One is 8'000' and the other 6'000. It's towered and has an ILS to one end of the longer runway, as well as a couple of other approaches.

SCIP is Mataveri Intl on Isla De Pascua, which belongs to Chile. In case you didn't press 1 for English, I'm here to say that this is Easter Island. It's typical of a lot of internationals in sparsely populated areas, a long runway (almost 11,000') but no parallel taxiway and minimal ramps and buildings. It is towered, has one ILS and good navaids nearby.

PHTO is Hilo Intl, the main airport on the big island of the Hawaiian group, Hawaii. It has two runways, one almost 9,800'. It has a good taxiway network, two large ramps and a long list of approaches, including one ILS.

ESUD Storuman, in Sweden, is an odd looking place which I suspect may be military in the real world - it just has that look. There is a 7,500' paved runway and a full length parallel taxiway. Aside from a MS fuel pump, there's not much else there in stock FSX. There is an ILS to one end and a few other approaches.

The update is KGMU, Greenville Downtown in Greenville, South Carolina. It's a dense package with two crossing runways, the larger only about 5,400' but is 150' wide and has an ILS to one end. There are five ramps scattered around and a busy taxiway network that drove this update to a second plate.

I've received a couple of request lists but neither has a short fuse so my plan is to just sprinkle them in at random as I continue to service the regular airport lists I work from too. I'm kind of anxious to get that national capitals list behind me and bring another one into play, possibly the list of US airports that were threatened with closure under the "Sequester" budget cuts. Those will all be US airports and will mostly be fairly busy, medium-sized fields that you should find interesting, hopefully.

KIAH George Bush Intercontinental/H - Houston, Texas - US (updated)

Current Airport Diagram Stats @ Mutley’s Hangar: Uploads 2,083; downloads 2,414; subscribers 13

Today didn't exactly go as I'd planned it. I received another request list today, this one in Iceland, and hoped to make hay on those. I will be doing about eight Icelandic airports over the next few days and the first is included here. After doing the first one, this being an update day, I went looking for the oldest diagram in the collection. It was KIAH, George Bush Intl in Houston, and turned out to be a handful. That was the end of Iceland for the rest of the day.

KIAH has five runways, and around a cubic boatload of taxiways, approaches and radio frequencies. Also, nine of the ten runways have ILSs, all of which conspired to create tons of text data which is the bulk of the work in constructing airport diagrams.

As a final insult, there was a dilemma with an NDB-LOM, at the outer marker, out on the Runway 15L and 15R approaches to Houston. In FSX it's designated as HS. It wasn't immediately obvious if the outer marker was for Runway 15L, 15R or both. It apparently no longer exists in the real world. I tried current charts and approach plates and looked at approach plates and enroute charts from 2006 (the year FSX was published) and it wasn't there either. On-line navaid look-up sites failed open too. My paper chart collection does not include either the Houston sectional or the Houston Terminal Area Chart - that incomplete set is pretty dated and might have been some help if I'd had the right ones, but didn't. Anyway, I completely struck out on finding any sign of that NDB anywhere except in FSX.

I finally screenshotted the FSX map view, zoomed to show the runways, the OM/LOM and the ILS feathers. I put that image in a graphics program and used the runways and the notches in the ILS feathers to construct lines for the extended centerlines. As it happens, HS lies between them but closer to the extended centerline of 15R, so I called it a Runway 15R LOM. It's pretty arbitrary, but the best I can do with the available data.

The diagram went to four plates, the main view, two plates with zoomed up segments of the airport for taxiway labeling and a final plate for all the text data. There were so many radio frequencies and published approaches I had to go to a two-column format for each of those lists. Because KIAH was such a handful, that and the first Iceland airport were all I managed to crank out today - I had hoped for more.

The Iceland airport is BIGJ, Gjogur. Of course the ICAO code is a lie, as they often are - the place is not BIG at all. This single gravel strip airport would have made my acceptance criteria for diagramming even without being on a request list for an event. It does have a single radio frequency and an NDB on the field, which would have made the cut. This airport looks to be set in some pretty spectacular scenery, so may be worth a look for you. Stand by for more Iceland airports over the next week or so.

All Iceland, all the time, or so it must seem. I have four left on that request list, so the next batch may look much the same. These are all smallish fields, however the last of the three, BIKR is somewhat bigger than the others and even has an ILS.

Since today is an update day, these are not ALL Iceland. These two complete six of the eight on the Iceland list, so two tomorrow and we'll be on to other places.

BISI is small and has little to recommend it but a gravel ramp with a building or three at the end of a 3,500' runway and an NDB in the middle distance. The other Icelandic field today is BIAR and has a little more going for it, including a tower and a localizer at one end of the 6,300' runway. It also has a quite a rogue's gallery of NDBs, all more or less lined up with the runway. Four are on the diagram and there's another a few tenths of a mile too far away to be included (must be within 20.0 NM of the ARP). The airport is at the end of a fjord and lined up with a valley, so the NDBs define the way in, though there are no published approaches in FSX.

The update is LFRG in France, situated in Deauville, in the Normandy region, so a short hop from Blighty if you happen to be based there. It has an 8,300 paved runway with very long overruns at both ends, and the obligatory parallel grass strip lying alongside it. It's towered, has one ILS and a medium size ramp, but doesn't give the impression of being a hotbed of aviation activity.

Tonight's batch finishes off the Iceland list and I've rounded it out with a Brazilian airport from one of the regular lists. I still have two long lead-time request lists under my wing and I'll be sprinkling those into the mix while maintaining some pressure on the normal lists too. Bottom line? You'll never know what's coming next. For that matter, neither do I, which is part of the fun.

None of these airports tonight are particularly noteworthy. Have fun with them if you can.

It's a double-batch day, I guess. It was rainy all day and I had plenty of time for airport diagrams. There are five new ones and an update, today being an update day.

The update is EGSN, Bourn, which was originally done in November 2009 from FS9 data. Since then a third runway has been added and one of the original two still present but marked as closed. Usually the FS9 and FSX versions of the same airport are pretty close to the same or only differ in small details but once in a while you find a major change, as was the case with this one.

LTAD, an airbase in Turkey and YSNF, Norfolk Island Intl, off New South Wales in Australia are from the military airfields and national capitals list, respectively. What is YSNF doing on the national capitals list you ask? Well, I wondered too so I looked it up. Wiki says this - " The island is part of the Commonwealth of Australia, but it enjoys a large degree of self-governance. Together with two neighbouring islands, it forms one of Australia's external territories." That explains that. Only four airports remain on the national capitals list.

The other three airports are all pulled from the various other lists, a mix from request lists and the standard ones.

EEK is a candidate for my list of unfortunate ICAO codes, but is unique in a sense. My standard text format for the airport listing looks kind of like the dialogue of a brainless actress auditioning for a part in a horror movie. In the only case of its kind that I know of, the ICAO code, airport name and city name are identical - EEK; Eek; Eek. There may be others but I haven't stumbled over any yet.

I have another bumper crop of airport diagrams for you again, partly because I never got a chance to report the ones that I did yesterday, even though I post them in the Mutley's Hangar file library as I do them. Anyway, this is yesterday's and today's production, a total of seven new an update.

This bumps us over 2,100 airport diagrams available at Mutley's Hangar now.

A few are interesting, for odd reasons.

HI28 in Hawaii, while not much of an airport, introduced me to a new kind of runway surface I have not encountered before, "Oil treated".

YSNB in the Northwest Territory of Australia caught my attention by the name - Snake Bay. It doesn't sound much like the kind of place I want to visit, particularly since there doesn't even seem to be an FSX building to hide in.

TXKF, is the main international airport in Bermuda and is, I believe, the only airport in Bermuda, which isn't all that big anyway. There was, in former times, a Bermuda NAS that based seaplanes but it had no land runway and is long abandoned and returned to the local government. TXKF is a fair sized international, with one runway, one ILS and the kind of navaids you'd expect for an island airport a long way from anywhere else. The runway is 9,700'.

08NY in upstate New York has an odd airport name, "Md1" - that's it. It also has a pair of perpendicular, crossing grass runways of different widths (60' and 40'), one 500' long and the other only 50' longer. It sounds like a good place to get some experience.

The update is KEKY in Bessemer, Alabama. It's a decent sized airport, looking like a good sized municipal and is located near Birmingham.

I think I hit at least one airport from most every list I'm working from in this batch, including Bermuda from the national capitals list, which is fading fast. I also got one, by an accidental overlap, from the draft list for the next Mutley's Hangar Around The World Challenge, which may be rolling out one of these months.

Just the usual three today, all new ones. The only one of any real import is KLVJ, Pearland Regional, in Houston Texas, and it's not a biggie. It has three runways, one paved. The two grass ones are, one each parallel and crossing. The main runway is only about 4,300' long. It's not towered and has no ILS but does have three other approaches, including one circling approach. As you might expect in the Houston area, there are plenty of navaids in the vicinity.

The Hawaiian one, PHSF, Bradshaw AAV, is towered but has not published approaches or much of anything else, though there are navaids close by.

Ditto Sweden, pretty much. Vidsel AB - it's towered and is longer than the other two but has no approaches and no navaids nearby.

Two of these are from the request lists I'm working; the other is from one of the standard lists.

By now, if you're paying any attention at all to the daily activity, you've figured out that the two request lists I'm working with are in Hawaii and Sweden. There are a few left to do on both, more at Hawaii than Sweden.

HI05 is a small, unremarkable, asphalt strip, only 1,800' X 35'. The only oddity is that the runway is designated E/W instead of being numbered.

ESUV is a little bigger, at about 2,400' X 100', but is grass. It has a published Multicomm frequency and a fuel pump, so that's something, I guess.

The update today is KWWR, originally done in November of 2009.

For the subscribers, I'm re-sending TXKF, Bermuda from a couple of days ago. I neglected to mark a handful of taxiways as closed on the second plate and have updated the file. The file in the MH File Library has been updated as well.

I have the usual three today, all new. PHUP in Hawaii is from a request list. It's an on-the-beach airport and appears to be pretty scenic, but isn't large. The paved runway is about 3,800'. It does have a very tiny mid-field ramp (one parking space), and radio frequencies, but is un-towered and has no fuel pump and no published approaches. It's Hawaii, after all - why would you need instrument approaches anyway.

The second one is EFKE, Tornio, in Kemi, Finland. This is also from a request list but the Sweden list has overflowed into Finland, it seems. This one has two runways, but one is unpaved (gravel) and is closed. The paved runway is about 8,200' and the field has a control tower and published approaches, even one ILS and a handful of taxiways connecting things together. There are a pair of NDBs at each end, spaced approximately where you might expect LOMs and LMMs, but there are no marker beacons with them so they are just stand-alone NDBs on the respective approach paths.

RJOI is Iwakuni Marine Corps Air Station in Japan, from the Military Airfields list. The runway is about 7,600' but the field, ramps and taxiways are much more complex than the other two airports presented today. It looks like quite a full-featured place, including a number of helipads, but has no ILS and no other published approaches.

This is mainly a continuation of the request lists, Finland (nee Sweden) and Hawaii, plus an update of the oldest file.

EFRU is a small field in Finland in the town of Ranua. The runway is a miserly 2,600 X 75 and though the place does have a published Multicomm frequency there's no fuel pump, approaches or even a nearby navaid. The very small ramp is set off on a taxiway almost as long as the runway, but not quite as wide.

PHHN, Hana, is yet another ocean-side airport in Hawaii. It's a little larger than the Finnish field at about a 3,600' runway, and has a more generous apron set off the runway and connected by three taxiways - no traffic jams here. Like Ranua, it has no tower, no nearby navaids and no published frequencies. It also lacks the MS fuel pump.

KCRS, the update today, is Campbell-Corsicana Muni, in Corsicana TX. Originally published from FS9 data in 2009, the field has grown an additional runway in making the jump to FSX. The new one is a grass strip, intersecting the existing paved runway at the north end, the two forming an inverted V. It's unusual for there to be such a prominent difference from one version of the sim to the next but not unheard of - this one has it. The paved runway is 5,000'. The field is non-towered but has good navaids and a decent number of published approaches.

EFRO in Finland finishes off the Sweden/Finland request list. There are four remaining in the Hawaii list.

EFRO appears to be either a mixed use field or a military field. My traffic program had C-130s, FA-18s and either L-39s or BAe Hawks, wasn't sure with. Since there were civil types there too I suspect it's a shared field. It has two runways but the little one is closed. The longer one is about 9,800', with an ILS at one end and a few other approaches as well. It's a towered field with a VOR/DME on the field and four NDBs scattered out along the approach paths. Only one is co-located with a marker, however. This is a two-plate file due to extensive taxiway labeling.

PHOG, another entry in my list of unfortunate ICAO codes, is another ocean-side airport in Hawaii. I hope that ICAO ID is not a reference to the WX there. This one is also a two-plater. It has a pair of runways in a V configuration, the longest at 7,000' long. It's towered, has a VOR/DME on the field and has a very complex terminal building, or more accurately, a set of interconnected buildings. There are about a dozen approaches but only one is an ILS.

FQMA, in Maputo, Mozambique is from the national capitals list, which is fading fast. I believe there are only two more to do to finish it. Like many third-world national capital international airports, this one is long on runway (over 12,000', plus a shorter one) but short on buildings. There is a pretty good-sized ramps with ample parking. It's towered, has a VOR/DME on the field and an LOM and a full ILS for one end. There is a nest of closed taxiways at the south end of the field.

Current Airport Diagram Stats @ Mutley’s Hangar: Uploads 2,118; downloads 2,416; subscribers 13

By the luck of the draw today, all three are US airports.

JHM, which is a damned odd ICAO code, is another Hawaiian airport from the request list I'm still working from. It's a short, single-strip airport with a paved 3,000' runway and a small ramp connected by two taxiways. There's one building, no fuel pump, and no approaches, but there are some published radio frequencies.

KGDM is Gardner Muni, in Gardner MA. It's about the same size as the Hawaiian one above but has a full-length parallel taxiway and a couple of small ramps - even a fuel pump. It's non-towered, but is lighted and has a published circle-to-land VOR approach. This one came from one of my large lists.

Today's update is 23XS, which is the Shorthorn Aux Landing strip at Ft. Hood. Yes, there is a Longhorn Aux Landing strip nearby and yes, it is longer, but has its own ICAO code. This one is not much but a bare strip, 2,200', paved but with no approaches, no fuel, no lights, no radio frequencies. The earlier diagram, which this one replaces, was from FS9 and apparently from a freeware, enhanced version of the airport. It showed a ramp at the north end, connected by a taxiway. I checked the stock airport in both FS9 and FSX and neither has that. I must have installed some FS9 freeware and diagrammed that. That's another example of my standards changing over time. If I diagrammed an add-on airport now, the diagram would certainly be annotated to reflect that.

PHLU is - stop me if you've already heard this - from the Hawaii request list. Only two remain to finish that one out.

PHLU is a small paved strip, 2700', with a tiny ramp on a taxiway stub near one end. There is a helipad. It's non-towered with the usual CTAF, FSS, etc. frequencies available, but there's no fuel and no published approaches.

YBRM is Broome Intl, in the city of the same name in Western Australia. It's got an 8,000' runway and a couple of decent sized ramps, one on each side of the runway, each connected by a pair of taxiway, which are labeled. That's an indicator of a good sized airport. It is non-towered but has both a DME and an NDB on the field, and a fuel pump. There are a half-dozen approaches but no ILS. The DME on the field makes me suspect it may be military but didn't come from the military fields list.

Last up is LFOJ, Bricy AB, which definitely IS military and DID come from the military fields list. This one turned into a two-plater for taxiway labeling. It has two paved runways but the short, fat one is closed. The open one is almost 7,900' long. There are a DME and an NDB on the field and a VOR/DME not far away - there is an ILS to one end and a second published approach. This is a controlled field. It even had three custom buildings to bring in.

I've received yet another request list, which I guess could best be described as European. The Hawaii list is about done - one more to do from that one.

LEAL is Alicante, Spain. It appears to be a pretty major place - big runway, almost 10,000' and a parallel taxiway with high-speed taxiways from it. The ramp is huge ad there are a few custom buildings. It's towered, as you'd expect, and has an ILS to one end, plus a few other approaches. There are good navaids nearby. All in all, a pretty well equipped place. There was enough taxiway labeling to argue for a second plate, which I did.

PMMK is Molokai airport, in Kaunakakai HI. This one is a bit more up-scale than most of the other Hawaiian airports we've been seeing with a pair of crossing, paved runways and a pretty good taxiway network. It even has a helipad. It is towered but has no ILS. There are three approaches, but oddly, all three are circling approaches to whichever runway you care to choose once you're visual. The longer of the two runway is only 4,500, so not a particularly large place. There is a VOR/DME not far away.

EGMC, Southend, England is the update in the bunch. It's a fairly big airport, rounding out the three for today. It has a runway just short of 6,000' and a crossing taxiway that looks like it might have been another runway at one time. There is an extensive taxiway network and a lot of buildings, including about three custom ones. It has a control tower and has an ILS to one end; in addition there's an NDB approach, supported by an NDB on the field.

HI49, which isn't much of an airport, finishes the Hawaiian list. It's just a 1,900' grass strip that wouldn't have made the cut to be diagrammed without being on a request list. I don't begrudge doing the little ones when part of a request list. That usually means someone, somewhere is putting together a multi-player event and that in turn means the diagrams are likely to be used, so no problem doing them, though they are probably of limited usefulness to anyone else.

LIBD, with a very fancy-schmansy airport name, is in Bari, Italy, one of the places I believe my father-in-law flew from as aircrew in B-24s for the 15th Air Force. It's high up on the heel of the boot of Italy, right on the Adriatic coast. This one has an 8,000' paved runway with a parallel taxiway and high-speed turnoffs. There's an ILS on one end and a VOR/DME on the field. All in all it's a pretty well equipped place.

HHAS is Asmara Intl, in Eritrea, in the Horn of Africa. It's the next to last entry on the randomized national capitals list - only one to go. This airport has a pair of runways in a V configuration, one closed. The open one is about 9,800' long and has a single ILS. The airport is towered and has a VOR/DME on the field. There are two ramps and a handful of buildings but it doesn't give the appearance of being a bustling airhead.
