Aerial View of Venice Municipal Airport

The Venice Municipal Airport is a general aviation facility located 1.7 miles south of the downtown area, along the Gulf of Mexico shoreline, on approximately 835 acres. It has two 5,000-foot runways which intersect each other. They are both 150 feet wide, have medium intensity runway lighting (MIRL), runway end identifier lights (REILS) and precision approach path indicators (PAPIs).

The airport is operated solely from the airport enterprise fund and receives no money from the city's general fund. Money for the enterprise fund comes from the airport's land leases. 

-About 200 aircraft are based at VNC. There are about 60,000 annual takeoffs and landings, as calculated by the airport's traffic counting system that includes sophisticated cameras located along each runway.

-General aviation includes all types of civilian aeronautical activities, except for scheduled airline service. VNC does not intend to offer scheduled airline service or large scale cargo service at any point in the future.

-Examples of general aviation include: privately owned aircraft, business/corporate aviation, charter operations, flight training, sightseeing, aircraft repair, medical evacuation/transportation, law enforcement, fire, and search and rescue operations.
