A Compass Calibration Pad (CCP) is located on the Southeast (SE) quadrant of the aircraft parking apron at the airport. Installed in August 2019, it is certified accurate for aircraft compass calibrations for the next five-year period. The procedure for Compass Calibration (“Swinging the Compass”) can be found in the current edition of FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 43.13-1_.
The CCP will be kept free of parked aircraft by the Fixed Base Operator (FBO) to the maximum extent possible, but may occasionally be unavailable due to aircraft high parking volumes.
