The Rosamond Skypark is a privately-owned and operated residential skypark located in Southern California's Antelope Valley (AKA "Aerospace Valley"). Our FAA designator is L00 (Lima-Zero-Zero) and our airport is open for public use. This website is operated by the Rosamond Skypark Association as a service to our owner/members. We also provide various items of interest to pilots and the general public.

General Info About Our Area:

Ambulance: Emergency: 911. Service is provided by Hall Ambulance Service from a sub-station in Rosamond.

Burn Permits: Available free at the Fire Station, phone (661)256-2401. Notify the fire station PRIOR to burning!

Cable TV: by Charter Cable. The Skypark has recently upgraded cable run to each lot, with high-speed internet now available along with various TV packages. Dish Network or DirecTV satellite services are popular and include virtually all local LA stations, at a cost starting at about $30 for 55 channels. NOTE: Our CC&Rs restrict outside TV antennas (but not the small satellite dishes) and in any case "off air" reception is spotty or not possible for many LA channels.

Dig Alert: Before digging call 800 642-2444 to get an USA (Underground Service Alert) number. Within 48 hours they will have the electric, gas, cable, water/sewer, and telephone companies verify they have no underground cables or pipes where you want to dig.

Dump: The Mojave-Rosamond Sanitary Landfill is located about 3 miles directly south of Mojave Airport. From 40th & Knox intersection it is a 13.5 mile drive. From Rosamond Boulevard turn north on Sierra Highway. At Sopp Road turn east across the railroad tracks (Desert Cement Block is on the northeast corner) at which point you are 5.6 miles from the dump. Follow the pavement as it turns north on Lone Butte Road, west on Reed Ave, and north on United Street. Past Courtaulds Aerospace is a Disposal Site sign. Turn right (east) to the dump entrance. Most solid waste is free to Kern Co residents. Drain oil is accepted for recycling but batteries & paint, etc., are not. Building materials and tires incur an extra charge. Call 800 552-KERN option 6 for more details.
