  • Alpha – Bravo Parking Ramp Rehabilitation Project (Summer 2015)
    The Alpha and Bravo Aircraft Parking Ramps renovation project is now well underway, and thanks to everyone for their cooperation and understanding. The Bravo phase is nearing completion and preliminary work in Alpha is in the beginning stages. The project should be completed by the end of September.
  • Transient Parking (Summer 2015)
    Alpha Transient is expected to be closed through much of August and September while the Alpha Parking Ramp renovation is in progress. A limited number of Temporary Transient Parking spaces will be made available as able on a first come first served basis in the Temporary Tiedown Ramp (located to the south of Twy V, near the Pilot Controlled Gate). Transient Parking will also continue to be available as normal at Hood Strip.
    Please feel free to contact us at the Lake Hood Office at 907-266-2410 or Airport Operations at 907-266-2600 (available 24/7) with any questions.
