!  Warning !
Airport Visibility Limitations

Pilots, vehicles, and pedestrians should be aware it is not possible to see from one end of the runway to the other and direct radio transmissions from one end to the other may not be heard. Visibility from take off positions to mid field may also be restricted. Prior to take off, pilots should take extra precaution to assure there are no other aircraft, vehicles, pedestrians, or animals on the runway.

This bulletin is a suggested procedure only. Aircraft operational
safety decisions are the sole responsibility of the pilot in command.

safety decisions are the sole responsibility of the pilot in command.


1.  Before taxing aircraft, make a radio check with the AWOS on 122.9 to ensure the radio is operative. Click the mike 4 times for a radio check.

2.  Taxi to the top of the midfield for a pre takeoff runway check. This position allows a visual check for aircraft at both runway ends as well as being able to observe the entire 3420 ft. length of the runway for other possible hazards. (Note: The extended taxiways located on the runway centerline at both ends of the runway are not visible from the midfield location. Accordingly, aircraft preparing to depart may not be visible from the midfield position).

3. This midfield location allows a visual check of all three windsocks and the wind tetrahedron. It also provides line of sight radio transmission to both ends of the runway. On 122.90 click the mike three times to receive AWOS winds and altimeter setting.

4.  After checking the runway conditions and determining the wind direction, from the midfield location, make an initial radio transmission, stating the intended takeoff runway (RUNWAY 21 IS THE PREFERRED LOW/NO WIND RUNWAY).

5.  It is recommended that all run-up and preflight preparations be completed before making the initial radio call at the midfield position. This will minimize the time between the initial radio call and the actual takeoff.

6. Taxi to the departure runway. AVOID RUNWAY CROSSINGS.

7.  Immediately prior to departure, click the mike four times and listen for the radio check to verify your transmitter is functioning. Then announce your departure. 


A complete traffic pattern with a standard entry as defined in the AIM is recommended to be flown by all arriving aircraft. "Elk Clearing" runs are NOT recommended, but if flown, should be in the direction of the active runway. Visually check both ends of the runway for aircraft

Note: The traffic pattern at Mogollon Airpark is east of the runway. Runway 21 has a left hand traffic pattern and runway 03 has a right hand traffic pattern.
