If your a current pilot, a former pilot, maybe a vetern of our armed forces, or simply someone who likes planes and the idea of flight, you will love this Jewell of Venice.
The Venice airport (VNC) was built during the 1940s by the United States Army Air Force. It served as a military flight training facility. The Army Air Corps base property went from the current airfield to the Island Hospital, West to the Gulf and into South Venice. – Title to the Air Corps Base was transferred to the city under terms established by the War Surplus Property Act a little more than 61 years ago. The airport generates its own funds. The taxpayers of Venice do not support the airport with their tax dollars. The airport pays the city for services such as Fire and Police protection. – The airport is a huge economic engine generating tens of millions of dollars a year into the Venice region. In 2000 the Airport master plan contained a detailed economic analysis that indicated that the Venice Municipal Airport contributed some $22,000,000.00 in direct economic impact to our region. Lots of happenings to take advantage of including an Annual Airport Appreciation Day and an annual visit by the Collins Foundation and there B-17, B24 and P51. There is also Flight Training including aerobatic training based on the field.
Many of my clients have credited our little airport as a big reason for moving to Venice. It’s a great way to check out our city, Fly in and enjoy the Honoluana Restaurant and Tiki bar located directly on the field or walk across to Sharkeys directly on the Beach.
I have been a pilot since 1992 and fly a 1978 Mooney currently hangered at vnc. If anyone cares to do a little hanger flying, or wants to explore the Real Estate opportuinities we currently have to offer, give me a call.
