Alternate Grass Landing Area (AGLA)

The AGLA is located in the Runway 3-21 safety area, 10 feet from the west edge light system and centered between connecting Taxiways D and E.
The AGLA is 3000 feet long and 100 feet wide. The longitudinal grade of the AGLA is 1.5 percent.
FAA requirements for approval state that usage of the AGLA is as follows:
"If any aircraft is using either the AGLA or the asphalt runway, no other aircraft is permitted to operate from either runway surface. It is understood that the AGLA and asphalt runway will operate as a single runway. The runway limitation is more than just a prohibition against simultaneous operations (which is a plane taking off or landing at the same time on either runway), if a plane is located on either of the runway surfaces, no other aircraft can enter either of the runway surfaces until after all aircraft have exited either of the runway surfaces. In order to ensure that there are NO SIMULTANEOUS OPERATIONS and only tail draggers with wingspans less than 49 feet are authorized to use the AGLA."
