Military Flight Support at Jacksonville JetPort

Cecil Field is home to some of the best training facilities on the East Coast. A former Navy Master Jet Base, this airfield has all of the pieces needed for successful operations away from home — superb operations support facilities, low cost logistics support, access to great ranges and target complexes and incredible off-duty recreational opportunities. With traffic volume at just a fraction of airfield capacity, operations can be uniquely tailored to the squadron needs. If you need something special, just ask. We'll do everything possible to make it happen! Make Cecil Field your next stop for a training deployment or weekend flight.
