Landing and Take-Off

(1) Fixed-wing traffic shall land and depart from paved runway surfaces only.

(2) Landings and take-offs shall normally be made on the runway most nearly aligned with the wind indicator. If wind is calm, runway 17 is designated as the preferred runway.

(3) Mid-point intersection take-offs are prohibited. Aircraft shall not enter the runway at any point other than the end.

(4) After landing, all aircraft shall clear the runway as soon as practical with no 180 degree turns permitted on the runway.

(5) Landings and/or take-offs from opposite ends of the runway at the same time are prohibited.

(6) Side-by-side or formation take-offs shall be considered as a special event and shall require prior approval by the Director of the Oregon Department of Aviation (Department) on a case-by-case basis.

Airport Traffic Patterns

(1) Pilots shall fly the traffic pattern designated for this airport. Agricultural applicator aircraft may deviate from the traffic pattern only in accordance with FAR 137.45, dated November 1974, as amended, provided such deviation does not conflict with any other traffic operating at the airport.

(2) The standard traffic pattern for fixed-wing aircraft at this airport is:

(a) A standard left-hand rectangular pattern as depicted in Figure 2;

(b) A standard altitude of 1,000 feet above ground level on entry and downwind legs;

(c) Maintain pattern altitude until abeam approach end of the landing runway, on downwind leg;

(d) Complete turn to final approach at least 1/4 mile from the approach end of the runway;

(e) On take-off, continue straight ahead until beyond departure end of runway:

(A) If remaining in the traffic pattern, commence turn to crosswind leg beyond the departure end of the runway, within 300 feet of the pattern altitude (900 feet MSL);

(B) If departing the traffic pattern, exit with a 45 degree left turn beyond the departure end of the runway after reaching pattern altitude. Straight out departures to the south are permitted.

(3) All aircraft approaching to determine airport conditions shall remain at least 500 feet above pattern altitude (1,700 feet MSL).

(4) Helicopters shall operate 500 feet below (700 feet MSL) and perpendicular to pattern prescribed for fixed-wing aircraft.

(5) Straight-in or non-prescribed turns to final are discouraged.

(6) Pilots of approaching aircraft with two-way radio communication shall contact UNICOM on 122.7 mhz prior to entering the traffic area, and monitor that frequency throughout the approach:

(a) If unable to contact UNICOM or otherwise determine the flow of traffic, pilots shall overfly the field to determine the active runway;

(b) If unable to communicate with UNICOM operator, pilots of radio-equipped aircraft shall blind-broadcast position and intentions at appropriate points.

(7) Runway 35 is the designated calm-wind runway.

Helicopters

(1) Approaches and departures shall not exceed 700' MSL.

(2) Land and take-off only in areas designated for helicopter use. Training activities may be conducted on runway using fixed-wing traffic pattern provided that no conflict with fixed-wing traffic is generated.

(3) Avoid hovering near fixed-wing aircraft.

(4) Remain clear of persons, vehicles and buildings so as not to endanger or interfere with persons or property.
