Facilities and aircraft
Rosamond Skypark covers an area of 100 acres (40 ha) at an elevation of 2,415 feet (736 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 8/26 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,600 by 50 feet (1,097 x 15 m).
For the 12-month period ending May 3, 2011, the airport had 15,000 general aviation aircraft operations, an average of 41 per day. At that time there were 71 aircraft based at this airport: 89% single-engine, 4% multi-engine, 1% helicopter, 3% glider, and 3% ultralight. The facility was designed by aeronautical engineer Sam Ramsey who resided at the sleepy airport for years prior to the development. Mr. Ramsey envisioned an airport where pilots could commute to LA while enjoying the quiet High Desert as a residence.
