LED Taxiway Lights

Two of our residents, Milt Bland and Ken Blair, replaced the taxiway light bulbs with LED bulbs going from 69 watts to 6.8 watts per bulb.  This is saving us about $30.00/month on electric costs as well as giving us a lifetime supply of FAA approved runway lights!  We are working on updating our overall lighting to improve the lighting and reliability while reducing costs.

Weather Reporting System

Holley Mountain Airpark now has a “Say Weather” weather advisory system.  It is activated by 6 mic clicks on our CTAF 122.7. It gives us the temperature, dew point, density altitude and wind speed as well as gusts and direction.  On a final approach just wind can be obtained with 4 clicks.   The sensors are located just across the runway from the pond.  You can access our information by going to Weather Underground, location is Clinton, AR and then it usually comes up with a downtown system, click change and “KARCLINT11” should appear which is us, and updates about every 10 seconds.

Fall Colors Come Early

Thanks to the HMA Garden Group volunteers, fall colors arrived early – delivered in an SUV!

Over 30 of the colorful plants found a new home at the entry island/rock…

And the postal center!

Thanks to Ron, Mary, Marty, Beth and David for exercising their Green Thumbs for all to enjoy.

Roadway Improvements Kick Off Spring

Roads were closed on April 16th and 17th  to allow Asphalt Pavers Inc. of Conway to resurface several areas of airpark roadway .

Two stretches of pavement had been showing signs of wear and breakdown, especially after the copious amount of rain we experienced in late winter and early spring of this year.  Both resurfacing projects picked up where last year’s paving stopped near the bottom of Flag Hill.   On Southridge Road the new overlay extends to the beginning of Citation Drive, while on Mustang Drive the fresh pavement reaches to just east of the Harrier Road intersection.

A small portion of Citation Hill was also repaved to repair two areas of damage.   This is the only airpark pavement resurfacing project currently planned for 2018.
