LOGAN -- After four years, officials at a the airport and the Federal Aviation Administration have found an inexpensive way to solve a runway approach beacon problem.
Logan-Cache Airport chief Rich Stehmeier told the Herald Journal of Logan on Tuesday that the result will help pilots find their way and land in bad weather.
And, after considering options that could have cost from $175,000 to $300,000, the cost was less than $30,000.
Back in 2007, the airport installed an instrument landing system and a $2 million lighting array extending more than a quarter-mile from the runway.
But the lights were never used because vehicles on a nearby street could block pilots from seeing them.
The simple solution was to raise the height of the lights by placing them atop poles.
