Acklins Island is located 370 km southeast of Nassau, Bahamas, in the southeastern section of the Bahamas chain of islands. With a residential population of fewer than 500 people, Acklins Island is one of the Bahamas’ most remote islands, which leaves it vulnerable in medical emergencies. It took just six hours to install the airfield lighting system. Tests of the handheld controllers confirmed the four-kilometer control range, even through dense bush between the runway edge and terminal building. Incoming pilots identified the active threshold lights from five nautical miles out on a clear, sunny day, and Bahamas Pineapple Air pilots spotted the threshold lights from 12 miles out during their first nighttime approach.
