California City Airport L71 new runway lights and intersection signs
The new low profile LED runway and taxi lights are installed and operational at L71. The runway was also measured and is being updated in the FAA national registry, it is 75 foot wide, not 70 foot wide as published. The intersection signs are in and functional as well.
With this work done, we invite all of our Glider clubs and operators to revisit the L71 airport for glider use. The new low profile lights are fantastic and remove the risk of a takeoff or landing mishap due to the old high profile lights. We at California City Airport have always enjoyed the gliders and their soaring adventures and invite you all back to L71 to try the new runway and services. Positioning for take offs and landings can be done from either end of the runway or at the center taxiway for your safety and convenience.
In March, there will be a "Wave School" held at our airport and supported by the Southern California Soaring Academy, based at Crystalaire Airport. New records for soaring will be sought after and most likely achieved. We will publish times and dates on the airport website soon at www.californiacityairport.com. March 13th thru the 16th is proposed at present.
We hope to see you there and come join us for some fantastic gliding weather here at L71
