Airport in Tazlina, Alaska
Alaska

A remote airstrip off the Glenn Highway at 2450 ft in elevation, the Tazlina Airport does have a wind indicator and is open to the public. Outside of that, the amenities are rather sparse. The runway is 900 feet long and was first activated September 1, 1950. Pilots are advised to visually inspect the airstrip before landing as there is no control tower or regularly scheduled maintenance.  The runway slopes down toward the center and has no standard markings but, as far as an Alaska bush airport goes, it's not too bad.
