A new compass rose pad was recently constructed at the Martin County Airport in Stuart, Florida.
A compass rose is a calibration tool for pilots to use to check that their on board compass is accurately tuned. Martin County’s new and improved compass rose features the Martin County logo as the centerpiece.
The new compass rose was constructed with a thermo-plastic design that will withstand weather elements much longer than the traditional waterborne paint, according to airport officials. The project was completed within a 60-day timeframe with virtually no interruption to the airside traffic, officials add.
