Arcadia Municipal is fortunate to have both a paved and turf runways. It has been many years since the turf runway has had any improvements done. Airport Manager Shelley Peacock has secured funds for making drainage and turf updates to 13-31 and work is underway at this time. This should improve access during the rainy season when the taxiways had standing water at times. From what we are seeing now this will be a major improvement to our airport. We will keep you posted as to when you can plan to land on the new turf. Thanks to Shelley and the City of Arcadia for their strong support for X06 and planning more improvements in the upcoming months. IE, the aprons around the T-hangars are set to be resurfaced beginning in October and this is a much needed update. Friends of Arcadia Airport is proud to be involved in such a great partnership with the City of Arcadia to promote and grow the airport. We are making plans now for the upcoming flying season of Fly-Ins and Pancake Breakfasts and will send out an email blast soon with this years calendar of events.
Aviation City will have some new features for our visitors this year so start planning your visit now.
