The Rosamond Skypark is a privately-owned and operated residential skypark located in Southern California's Antelope Valley (AKA "Aerospace Valley"). Our FAA designator is L00 (Lima-Zero-Zero) and our airport is open for public use. This website is operated by the Rosamond Skypark Association as a service to our owner/members. We also provide various items of interest to pilots and the general public.

Airport Data & Operational Hints:

Lima-zero-zero located in Southern California's Antelope Valley, north of Los Angeles. We are seven miles north of William J. Fox Airport (WJF) and two miles west of the town of Rosamond. [Click for Google Map Pix]

A Few Airport details:

Coordinates: The official Airport Directory coordinates are: N34° 52.25 W118° 12.55 which is not the center of the airport.
The WGS-84 coordinates of the "numbers" Runway 26 are: N34° 52.27 W118° 12.03, Runway 08 are: N34° 52.25 W118° 12.61

Runway: 08-26 is 3,600 feet by 50 feet. The winds generally favor Runway 26. Calm wind runway is Runway 26; please use it for departures if possible for noise abatement & safety. Avoid over-flying schools 1 mi. E (left base for 26) & 1 mi. SW (left crosswind turnout from 26).

Elevation: 2,415 feet MSL.

Patterns: Airplane pattern -- south side at 3415 MSL/1000 ft AGL (Rwy 08 is RIGHT pattern), Glider, helicopter and ultralight pattern -- north side at 500 ft AGL .  CAUTION:  Be alert for possible no-radio aircraft and also for pilots using non-standard pattern entries, in particular high-speed overhead entries.   While this is an "uncontrolled airport", use of FAA's AIM standard pattern is encouraged for safety.

Com Freqs: CTAF is 122.9, click 4 times for automated advisory (3 clicks delivers wind info only). For flight following North, contact Joshua Approach on 133.65; South, Joshua on 124.55.

Lights:  MIRL single intensity. On from Dusk to 11 PM. After 11 PM they become PCL (Pilot Controlled Lighting) using 122.9. 5 clicks in 5 seconds turns them on for 15 minutes.  NOTE:  Rotating beacon is out of service indefinitely.

IFR Operations Hints:   Rosamond has no IFR approach. However, Fox Field (KWJF, 7 miles S.) has VOR and RNAV (GPS) approaches and it would be a rare situation weather-wise not to be able to reach VFR conditions on the approach, cancel and depart VFR/SVFR from Fox to Rosamond. Terrain between Fox and Rosamond is flat and essentially unobstructed. Rosamond IFR departures can (usually) reach Joshua Approach on the ground (124.55) for clearance delivery and/or release, otherwise immediately after takeoff. Normal departure would be to file "direct PMD (Palmdale VOR)..." or some other fix southward, then (rest of route). Note: Due to our position at (under, actually) the south edge of Isabella MOA, ATC can only issue a clearance that starts at the point you reach "their" airspace at about 4000 MSL & 3 miles south. You can depart & climb either VFR or pilot nav 'maintaining own terrain clearance' to reach that point. Similarly, you could file a valid IFR clearance into Rosamond but you would have to cancel during your arrival before leaving their controlled airspace.
