  • See Airport Standard Operating Procedures above.
  • AirNav.com - this link should take you directly to the 46CN, Crystalaire Airport information, called Crystal Airport on the AirNav website.

The airport is located on the Los Angeles sectional at 34° 29' N, 117° 49' W.  We are 43.5 nautical miles out on the 27° radial from LAX.

Crystal has a 2,600' paved runway, with approximately 1,000' of extra usable dirt runway at each end.

The runway is oriented approximately East-West (7 and 25), and is at an elevation of 3420' above sea level.  Be aware that there are power lines along 165th St., at the West end of the runway.

The power traffic patterns are to the South of the runways, with a right pattern for runway 7, and a left pattern for runway 25.  Gliders fly their patterns to the North, with a left pattern for 7 and a right pattern for 25.

Pilots are requested to announce their position on the airport frequency of 123.00 when arriving within three miles of the airport, when entering the pattern, and when turning downwind and base.

Gliders and Gliders on Tow have the right of way.
