Default Airport expansion

With all the people moving into the Villages, what are the chances of Leesburg or Ocala expanding their airports to get a closer flight to the Villages?

That actually falls within the realm of Department of Transportation. You could try and get a petition going within The Villages and have it presented to the Secretary of Transportation for essential air service. Talk about a very expensive program (Essential Air Service) to the taxpayers, though.

There is a grass strip just north of the micro racetrack that's off of 466A. If your flying here in a small plane. It's a private strip, so get permission first.

Along with an expanded airport comes noise from more airplanes flying over you homes. Be careful what you wish for.

Just let mayor Daley from Chicago know. He like to tear down houses to build a bigger airport like at O'hare.
