A GPS (instrument approach) landing system recently went into operation at Blake. The high-tech navigation gear is a major upgrade for operations and is the result of five years of planning, acquisition and installation, according to Blake Field managers Mark and Cheryl Husmann. During a recent report to the county commissioners, the Husmanns said there's a list of about 20 people who want to rent or lease hangar space which is currently unavailable at Blake. On another note, the price of aviation fuel is $4.45 per gallon and has come down slightly, but not as much as automotive fuel.
