Cecil Airport

Airframes to the Atmosphere.

The same infrastructure that makes Cecil an ideal commercial horizontal launch spaceport allows it to thrive as an industrial airport. Cecil Airport hosts maintenance repair and overhaul activities, flight testing, and general aviation operations throughout the year.  It is home to a wide variety of aerospace industry leaders including The Boeing Company, Flightstar Aircraft Services, LSI, ManTech, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Coast Guard, Navy Fleet Readiness Center Southeast, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Wood Group Pratt and Whitney, and more.

 Why are these and other companies landing at Cecil Airport? Strategic location, excellent facilities, and a workforce with the skills for high-flying performance through training at specialized aviation centers located at the Cecil Commerce Center and throughout Jacksonville.
