A 239-acre commercial/industrial park with 6,000-foot runway access.

Whiting Aviation Park is the perfect location for an aviation-related business. The park is designed for a mixture of aviation related commercial and industrial development as well as non-aviation development. It's perfect for manufacturing, maintenance, repair, and overhaul type aviation operations. It's Florida First Certified — which means it's project-ready with the due diligence complete to minimize risk and accelerate speed to market.

Whiting Aviation Park is a 239-acre commercial/industrial park adjacent to Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Northwest Florida. Through a limited-access use agreement between Santa Rosa County and the United States Navy, civilian tenants of the Aviation Park will be able to use the Navy’s airfield facilities. The agreement allows up to 75 operations by civil aircraft per day with access to two active bi-directional runways. The Navy provides runway access and monitors airspace.

While the 6,000-foot runway is the central feature, many amenities make Whiting Aviation Park an ideal location:

  • Up to 239 acres for your operation with expansion potential.
  • Easy access to major highways and Interstate 10.
  • A formidable aerospace and defense workforce that’s strong and growing.
  • Centrally located in one of the world’s most active military aviation regions.
  • Close to thousands of square miles of protected airspace.
  • VFR flight conditions over three hundred days each year.
