Field Closure for Runway Resurfacing

Posted by on Jun 22, 2017 in News

Update: August 11, 2017:

The runway resurfacing and striping is complete!

Update: August 8, 2017: 

The City have just informed me that the striping contractor is running a little behind because of the rain. They are not sure that they will be able to get to striping our runway today or not. If it is not done today it will be done tomorrow morning.

The paint takes about one hour to dry so hopefully we can get back in the air tomorrow afternoon. Please use common sense and if you find people working on the runway tomorrow, please give them time to finish the job.

Update: August 5, 2017: 

The runway is being paved! August 5.


Update: July 24, 2017: The runway resurfacing will begin Tuesday, July 25 and will continue approximately 12 days.

The Seahawk Air Park runway will be taken up and re-done starting July 25, 2017 will close the runway for approximately 12 days.. The field will be closed while the work is being done. I will give you more specific dates and details as they become available. I trust that the new runway will be in pristine condition when finished.

Members can view progress using field cameras #1 and #2. See your email for instructions.
