Air Sailing Inc. Gliderport Runway Rehab


Settled about 20 miles north of Spanish Springs off Winnemucca Ranch Rd, the Air Sailing Gliderport is an airport home to many recreational pilots flying both small engined and air sail glider planes. The Gliderport, consists of two dirt runways, 2 asphalt paved runways along with two hangers and camping facilities. A&K was contracted to pulverize and repave the 1600 linear foot asphalt runway, re-grade the two dirt runways and also to pave aprons for the fueling station and tow plane hangar. A&K partnered with the non-profit owner to maximize their limited budget and to bring as much value as possible to the project. In one example of partnering, A&K crews encountered approx. 5000 square feet of wet subgrade materials during prep of the base grade materials for paving. Instead of a very expensive over-excavation and import operation, A&K was able to adjust their phasing and process the subgrade material to dry it out, therefore minimizing the cost impact to the owner. Even with this setback in time, A&K was able to work on other phases and is still going to finish the project ahead of schedule and weeks ahead of the Gliderport’s first big event of the year.
