The second creation by Jordan Gough, L05 Kern Valley is in the stunning Lake Isabella area, approximately 35 nautical miles North-East of Bakersfield, CA. The airport is a small, single 3500ft runway general aviation airfield with camping facilities, a café and maintenance facilities.
Being a high elevation airport and in the desert, a flyer needs to make careful performance calculations before take-off as the density height may reach up to 8000ft on a sweltering day!
A gateway to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Kern Valley is in the perfect location to make a stop on your journey north from the Los Angeles Basin, and is also just a stone’s throw away from Orbx’s other airfields designed for NA Southern California.
