Fly Into the Kennedy Space Center from Ridge Landing

Titusville – KTIX
Flying from Ridge Landing for the day, you can land at Titusville to visit the Kennedy Space Center. Land at Space Coast Regional (TIX) and park at Bristow Air Center. The FBO is great, and the will call you a cab. After a ten minute cab ride, they will drop you off at the Kennedy Space Center. The visitor center is great way to learn about the history of space flight. I would recommend that all pilots fly into TIX for the day and see the Space Center.

Fly-In to Crooked Lake | Florida’s Float Plane and Amphibian Aircraft Oasis

Fly your amphibian aircraft onto Crooked Lake

Today’s destination is so close you don’t even have to fly. Crooked lake is a lake located in Southeast Polk County Florida directly across the highway 27 from Ridge Landing airport. Crooked lake is one of the largest lakes in Polk County both in terms of area and total volume with a maximum depth of up to 45 feet and over 21 billion US gallons of water.

Millions of years ago when sea levels were much higher than today only a few isolated hilltops of today’s Lake Wales Ridge were exposed as islands offering sanctuary to the evolution of dozens of unique species of plants and animals. The rest of Florida’s peninsula was covered by shallow sea where vast array of sea life and coral lived in grew.

As the sea slowly receded during the Ice Age’s Florida was slowly exposed, and the new life forms expanded there range along the sandy dunes of the ridge. Today the thin straight-line of the 100 Mile ridge is clearly visible from space.
