Private Airstrip

The founder on final approach to our project:

The existing 4,000 foot runway (all of it usable with ocean on both ends), is currently capable of handling short-field corporate jets such as Cessna Citations or large twin-engine airplanes. The airstrip is currently owned by the country of Chile; however, we can privately lease it in a concession (50-100 years) if we install an ILS sourced from Seattle. It is also possible to extend the length of the airstrip to permit larger corporate jets. We have had discussions with the Chilean equivalent of the FAA, and we obtained the first level of oral agreements, but the details will have to be worked out in written legal agreements once we have the capital in place. It is currently "private" in the sense that we have never seen anybody else there every time we have landed, and it is in the closest possible place we can locate a runway to our island building site. It includes a docking area for easy transition to the island. In addition, it has a connection to the only north/south highway that runs the length of Chile thus providing us total dominance in that region.

In a tax-free zone, having an airstrip to import to, and for construction, will be a huge asset.

The following is what the airstrip looked like before we invested a year of work to convince the government of Chile to pave it for us. For one year the founder had as our top priority a campaign to lobby the Chilean government to pave the airstrip for us. This is what it looked like as a dirt airstrip:

The picture at the top of this webpage is what it now looks like after it has been paved.

This airport will provide us with a trifecta: 1) air, 2) sea, and 3) land.

We had an expert design an ILS (instrument landing system) approach. Our next step is to perform a “Signals Analysis.” We believe an ILS is possible, but require funding to complete the work.
