Runway profile, orientation, elevation

Runway orientation: 1-19

Elevation: 5970

Length: 2500’ estimated

GPS Coordinates: N42.219165, W 106.869548

Special Considerations or Operations

Windsock at substation 2 miles north of runway can be used until sock is placed near runway.

20’ windsock pole with no windsock near west side of runway. Flyovers should be at or above 6050’.

Large power lines ⅓ mile east of runway, running mostly parallel to strip.

Cactus, small sage, mounds of buffalo grass on runway. Bigger tires recommended for landing.

South end of runway terminates with abrupt 50’ drop off.

Airstrip Communication Frequency

122.9

Arrival Procedure

Use 122.9 and announce arrival. The wind usually favors landing 19 and can be checked using windsock on substation 2 miles north of the runway until windsock is placed at the runway. Right pattern is recommended for landing runway 19 and left pattern is recommended for landing runway 1 due to proximity of high power lines on east side of runway.

Departure Procedure

Preferred departure is runway 19 that descends towards the river.

Amenities

Engstrom Campground on the river with an outhouse.
