Ormond Beach Airport (ICAO: KOMNFAA LID: OMN), also known as Ormond Beach Municipal Airport, is a general aviation airport located 3 miles (4.8 km) to the northwest of the city of Ormond Beach in Volusia County, Florida, USA.

History[edit]

OMN was established in 1943 as Outlying Field Ormond Beach (OLF Ormond Beach), a naval aviation training field under the oversight of the Naval Air Training Center at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida. As an OLF, it supportied wartime training operations conducted at/from Naval Air Station DeLand, Naval Air Station Daytona Beach and Naval Air Station Sanford. Military operations were discontinued at the end of World War II and the airport was deeded to the city by the U.S. Government in 1959 for use as a civilian airport.

Facilities[edit]

Ormond Beach Airport covers 1,128 acres (456 ha) and has two operational, fully illuminated asphalt runways, 4,000 feet (1,200 m) and 3,701 feet (1,128 m) in length, respectively, as well as two closed runways that are 4,000 feet (1,200 m) in length.

The airfield is home to multiple Fixed Base Operators and aviation service and support companies offering various aviation services such include aviation gasoline and jet fuel, aircraft flight instruction and hire, aircraft servicing and aircraft interior modification and repair, among others.[1] The airport also provides an additional location for flight training operations from nearby Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University at Daytona Beach International Airport.

In 2003, Ormond Beach Municipal Airport received nearly $500,000 dollars as part of the federal Airport Improvement Program (AIP) to help with aviation safety and other airfield improvements.[2] As of 2009, the airport has an operational FAA Level 1 Air Traffic Control Tower under the FAA Contract Tower Program and a 1,000-square-foot (93 m2) passenger terminal building, with 45 on-airport parking spaces. There are also about 50 tie-downs for the airport's general aviation aircraft. Between the airport's T-hangars and conventional hangars, there are 150 covered parking spaces for aircraft.[3]
