Catalina Flying Boats

Long Beach, California.(KLGB) To Avalon, California. (KAVX) And return

The challenge: The runway at the Catalina Airport, near the city of Avalon, was developed when two mountain tops were sheared off and leveled. As a result, the island’s only airport is 1,600 feet above sea level. To add to the challenge, the single runway is 2,970 feet in length with sharp drop-offs on either end, leaving little room for error. A charter by Roger Hayes.
