Re: 400' x 20' "driveway"

Why not call up a asphalt paving company, ask them to come take a look and quote a price to properly repair the crack?

My guess is that it will require cutting out the existing cracked section, digging out and compacting a proper base, then repaving the area.

the big issue that stops any of this is making sure the crack doesnt come back

again one wants to spend the money only to have teh crack come back in 2 years

Which is why any fix applied just to the crack will never last long term. You don't build a house starting with the roof first, you build the basement upon firm ground. If the ground isn't firm, you dig down until it is.

Do they have enough money to pay for a CONCRETE runway?

But seriously, a paving company would know (Well, get several different opinions).

I'm thinking that if a latex based compound is applied to the crack, it would last a while since the compound would be able to stretch and compress.

But it's still an imperfection that could flip out a plane with tiny wheels.
