Precision Approach Path Indicator System Installation Slated at Nacogdoches Airport

Tuesday, January 7, at 1:00 p.m. the City of Nacogdoches'  A.L Mangham Jr. Regional Airport will celebrate the beginning of installation of the new PAPI (precision approach path indicator) lighting system on the south end of Runway 18-36.

This long awaited project is thanks to a generous donation of $45,000 from the Micky Elliott Family Foundation, a longtime supporter of the airport and its future development. The City of Nacogdoches invites the public and media to this event to celebrate the PAPI installation by KSA Engineering. As the City of Nacogdoches looks toward the future, the airport will have a crucial role in the economic development of the community.

PAPI lighting is important to pilots when landing in low light conditions or at night and its inclusion at the Nacogdoches Airport is essential to local aviation. These systems support pilots by giving a "glide path" while descending into the airport environment to avoid obstacles. PAPI lighting will provide not only convenience but safety to aircraft landing up to 20 miles at night and 3 miles during the day.

KSA Engineering is an industry leader, providing a broad range of engineering, architecture, planning, surveying, and construction management services and has worked on many projects with the City of Nacogdoches.

The City of Nacogdoches' A.L Mangham Jr. Regional Airport is a general aviation public airport, which provides cargo, corporate, and recreational pilots a convenient, full-service destination.
