Runway

Our mighty 2-mile-long runway in Lake Charles, LA is capable of handling every aircraft flying in the world today.

The dimensions make it a favorite for charter flights, general aviation of all kinds, military touch-and-go practice …and, on multiple occasions, Air Force One.

The runway is:

  • 10,700 feet long.
  • 200 feet wide.
  • Built with 17-inch-thick concrete.

The newly refurbished parallel taxiway has runway capabilities as well.
