Spruce Creek Airport (FAA LID: 7FL6) is a private airport located in Port Orange, seven miles (11 km) south of the central business district of Daytona Beach, in Volusia County, Florida, United States.[1] It was originally constructed during World War II as an outlying field (OLF) to nearby Naval Air Station DeLand and NAS Daytona Beach. OLF Spruce Creek originally had four paved 4,000 foot runways and was abandoned by the U.S. Navy in 1946.

Today, Spruce Creek Airport operates exclusively to service the residents of the Spruce Creek Community, a gated enclave and residential airpark development, which surrounds the airport on all sides with over 1,300 homes, a championship golf course, country club, and 24-hour patrolling security.[2] Fly-In residents enjoy sole access to the airport's one remaining operational runway directly from their homes.

The Spruce Creek Airport covers an area of 1,350 acres (550 ha) which contains one asphalt paved runway (5/23) measuring 4,000 x 176 ft (1,219 x 54 m). For a 12-month period the airport had 25,000 general aviation aircraft operations, an average of 68 per day. There are 438 aircraft based at this airport: 67% single-engine, 31% multi-engine, 1% jet and 1% helicopter.[1]
