About Catalina Island Aviation Foundation The non-profit Catalina Island Aviation Foundation was estab- lished in 2014 to protect and promote more than 100 years of aviation history on one of America's most beautiful islands. Its work includes helping main- tain Catalina's Airport-in-the-Sky. Located 10 miles from the city of Avalon, the airport was completed in 1946. It occupies a 1,602-foot- tall mountaintop at the center of the Island and has a single 3,250- foot-long ruiaway. To promote nat- ural flight alongside general avia- tion, the Catalina Island Aviation Foundation has partnered with the Catalina Island Conservancy to help protect nesting grounds for the American Bald Eagles that call the island home. 10 Friday, September 19, 2014 THE CATALINA ISLANDER
