The runway beacon is now Pilot activated with 3 clicks on 118.5 and will remain on for 15 minutes The runway light will remain on a photocell system. However, if you should need to activate them for any reason, they require 5 clicks on 118.5

WAC FD38 maintains standard LEFT PATTERN for fixed wing Aircraft
500 ft AGL Helicopter
1000 ft AGL fixed wing
1500 ft AGL high performance twins and JET aircraft

Training at WAC is approved and encouraged. Must be a current resident. Please be courteous of residents departing or arriving. Please communicate on the CTAF 122.85. Communication is key to safe operations

WAC Departure Communications are KEY
Use of landing light recommended
Monitor ASOS 118.075 Choose departure RWY Calm wind RWY 34
Self-announce (on 122.85) taxi intentions when approaching Parallel Taxiway
Back Taxi on Runway not recommended
Aircraft requiring back taxi on runway must state intentions on 122.85 and yield to aircraft in pattern
Aircraft requiring run up should do so prior to entering the runway. Please be aware of property behind aircraft in an effort to keep prop wash under control
Departing aircraft should fly RWY heading to 500 ft MSL before making turns
Departing RWY 16 and making Right turn should fly RWY heading till above pattern altitude prior to initiating the Right turn
It is recommended Departing aircraft make final radio call prior to changing Radio frequency

High performance and Jet departures from Runway 34—  It has been recommended by PB Air Traffic Control Tower/TRACON  (Shane T. Ahern) to depart with a heading of 280* to avoid crossing the final to KPBI rnwy 10. (they are aware it is outside of the controlled airspace) It is highly recommended Jet traffic depart on an IFR flight plan with a release obtained on the ground prior to departure


WAC Arrivals Communications are KEY
Use of landing lights recommended
Obtain weather via AWOS 118.075 determine wind favored RWY (RWY 34 calm wind)
Monitor CTAF 122.85 for traffic already in pattern
Self-announce aircraft type, position and intentions (recommended @ 10 nm out) Update position and intentions as approaching WAC
The FAA encourages pilots to use the standard traffic pattern when arriving or departing a non-towered airport or a part-time-towered airport when the control tower is not operating, particularly when other traffic is observed or when operating from an unfamiliar airport. However, there are occasions where a pilot can choose to execute a straight-in approach for landing when not intending to enter the traffic pattern, such as a visual approach executed as part of the termination of an instrument approach. Pilots should clearly communicate on the CTAF and coordinate maneuvering for and execution of the landing with other traffic so as not to disrupt the flow of other aircraft. Therefore, pilots operating in the traffic pattern should be alert at all times to aircraft executing straight-in landings, particularly when flying a base leg prior to turning final.
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Traffic. Pilots conducting instrument approaches should be particularly alert for other aircraft in the pattern so as to avoid interrupting the flow of traffic, and should bear in mind they do not have priority over other VFR traffic. Pilots are reminded that circling approaches require left-hand turns unless the approach procedure explicitly states otherwise. This has been upheld by prior FAA legal interpretations of § 91.126(b).
Upon Landing exit the runway as soon as practical. Continue to use radio calls as necessary
Aircraft requiring back taxi on Runway please continue to make radio calls (for obvious reason)

WAC ground operations (Recommended)
Radio calls (122.85 CTAF) recommended during all phases of ground operations While continuous monitoring of 122.85
Use off parallel Taxiways recommended if taxiing on RUNWAY (proper radio calls to be used)
Fueling pad for fueling only. No passenger pickup or drop off.
No fueling with engine running (no hot fueling)
A qualified PIC must be at controls at all times while helicopter rotors are turning
Tie down only in tie down area. Tie down anchors are required as per HOA documents
Recommended contact info left in visible spot on all aircraft in tie down area
Tie down on Taxiways prohibited per HOA documents
See resolution of the BOD recorded 02/10/2006 (currently in effect)
It is recommended to amend Cart resolution to suggest and require any persons operating a cart to cross the runway be a licensed pilot or specifically trained in aircraft operations
