Marianna Municipal Airport (ICAO: KMAIFAA LID: MAI) is a public airport five miles northeast of Marianna, in Jackson County, Florida. It is owned by the Marianna Municipal Airport Authority.[1] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013 categorized it as a general aviation airport.[2] It was formerly Graham Air Base.

Many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is MAI to the FAA and has no IATA code. (IATA assigned MAI to Mangochi, Malawi).

History[edit]

Military use[edit]

Civil use[edit]

National Airlines (NA) initially provided commercial air service to the airport utilizing Convair 340/440 series aircraft. The airline discontinued service in 1961 and the airport has had few or no airline flights since.

The airport has two 4,900-foot (1,500 m) by 100-foot (30 m) intersecting hard surface runways with a pavement strength of 56,500 pounds single wheel load. Runway 18/36 is the primary runway. Although the USAF control tower and base operations building remain on the flight line, the airport has been an uncontrolled field for its entire time as a civil airport.

The airport continues to see military aircraft, with a third of the airport's operations normally being transient military training flights, mostly Army helicopters from Fort Rucker and Navy helicopters from Naval Air Station Whiting Field.[3]

Facilities[edit]

The airport covers 2,400 acres (970 ha) at an elevation of 110 feet (34 m). It has two operational asphalt runways: Rwy 8/26 is 4,895 by 100 feet (1,492 x 30 m) and Rwy 18/36 is 4,896 by 100 feet (1,492 x 30 m).[1]

In the year ending March 9, 2009 the airport had 28,016 aircraft operations, average 76 per day: 67% general aviation and 33% military. 30 aircraft were then based at the airport: 66.7% single-engine, 20% multi-engine, 6.7% helicopter and 6.7% glider.[1]
