(CPA) — The Commonwealth Ports Authority said it is aware of the public’s concern regarding the Rota International Airport’s flight service radio and runway lighting. CPA is providing the following updates to alleviate those concerns.

The flight service antenna is currently fully functional. The flight service antenna was damaged by Typhoon Hagibis in October 2019. After the typhoon, CPA sought professional assistance to identify the specific issues and repairs needed for the flight service antenna. Once the issues and repairs were identified, CPA immediately initiated its procurement process to receive the needed parts. The parts have been installed, and the system is now fully functional.

In regard to the runway lighting, CPA has executed a purchase order for the constant current regulator, which is an item needed to resolve the lighting issue. CPA is currently waiting for that item to arrive. CPA notes that night-time medical evacuations are still possible at the Rota International Airport via helicopter.

CPA appreciates the public’s patience and understanding as it resolves the issue with Rota International Airport’s runway lighting.
