As our aviation community continues to grow we are ecstatic to share footage taken with a drone and GoPro.
We could name 101 reasons why you should invest in a residential airpark community. From the amazing aviation destinations Florida has to offer to unrestricted access to the 3000′ x 60′ Paved runway but you can just come see for yourself.
Stay in one of the private pilot aviation homes and the best part is if you end up investing in property here you can put your stay towards a downpayment. Read More
One of our very own airpark residents had quite the adventure for his birthday. Florida has some of the most amazing aviation destinations and Michael McMahan had the experience of a lifetime in Kissimmee at Stallion 51 flying the Mustang P-51 aka “Crazy Horse”.
Mike posted on his Facebook thanking his brother Bobby for a fantastic birthday gift.
“I flew a 1944 P51 Mustang for an hour over central Florida. Loops, barrell rolls, wing overs and more! Thank you to my brother Bobby”
We asked our fellow aviators that are subscribed to the Airpark Life newsletter what their favorite aviation joke or one liner was.
We heard some real doozies and decided to compile a list of some of the best ones from throughout the years, if you like the jokes feel free to share and if we missed your favorite let us know and bring the conversation to Google + or Twitter.
Flight attendant asks if the Captain wants a cup of coffee. He answers sure, just like I like my women. Flight attendant answers “Hell, they don’t make coffee hot and stupid.”

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from all of us at the Florida Airpark.
For those spending the holidays in the aviation community we are thrilled to have you. For those wishing to visit, please let us know so we can make accommodations. In the meantime take a look at our fly in pilot homes for rent.
If you have been reading our aviation blog you already know we have been compiling a list of our favorite fly in destinations around Florida. Most are only a short flight from our aviation community and perfect for a day trip, weather grabbing a bite to eat or pursuing something more adventurous we wanted to make sure you could always keep a full itinerary if relaxing by lake or pool isn’t your ideal afternoon.
Community of International Pilots
Since we are an international aviation community we wanted to expand our horizons. Airpark Real Estate owners include folks from Venezuela, Holland, Brazil, Italy, Philippines and Ukraine. And we are excited to have made friends with Siljan Airpark in Sweden whose members will be visiting us early next year for Sun N Fun.
In light of all of this we started asking our readers what their favorite destinations were and we were pleasantly surprised with the responses as we discovered many spectacular places for private pilots to spend the day at. The responses below.
