Airport News and Information

Notice:  LOP NDB Out of Service

The Lampson Non Directional Beacon (LOP NDB) is permanently Out of Service.

Notice:  PAPI Lights

The Runway 28 PAPI is set to 4.0 degrees. This is 1/3 steeper than the more normal 3 degrees.

Local Knowledge:  Look out below! and don't land short. Our rather steep PAPI glide slope angle, when combined with the 150 foot off-set threshold of Runway 28, provides aircraft a safe crossing height above the vehicle traffic using the roadway at the east end of the runway.

    Quiet Flying
    Lampson Field is surrounded by noise sensitive areas, including Lakeport, many lakeshore homes and several lakeside resorts.

    Our primary Quiet Flying Zone includes the commercial and residential areas located north of the airport traffic pattern. It is bounded by Clear Lake on the east and extends one-half (½) mile to the west of the freeway portion of Highway 29.

    The Quiet Flying Zone extends from the airport traffic pattern north to Sutter Lakeside Hospital, with its very visible helicopter landing pad (N 39-06.5 W 122-54.3).

    Please avoid flying in our primary Quiet Flying Zone below 3,500 MSL.
