Abstract:

At the request of Tactical Air Command, a Pavement Evaluation Team from HQ Air Force Engineering and Services Center AFESC performed modified destructive airfield pavement evaluations at LaJoya Air Base and Pisco Air Base, Peru during 26 April-10 May 1989. The purpose were to establish physical property data, determine pavement load-carrying capabilities, and identify any existing or potential pavement distresses. The LaJoya airfield consists primarily of 13,154 ft long runway and a parallel taxiway which is also used as a runway. Primary apron features include the East and West Aprons with aircraft shelters dispersed around each. The Portland Cement Concrete PCC parking aprons are generally fair and the asphaltic concrete AC runway and taxiway are in good and very good condition, respectively.
