Venice Travel Planner logo   Venice Municipal Airport, Venice FL
The airport in Venice Florida is a small general aviation airport with several flight schools for would-be pilots.




Built in 1942 as the 337th Army Air Field, the small general aviation airport on the south side of Venice Florida (map) was deeded to the town in 1947.

Today it's used by owners of small prop and jet aircraft, by the Coast Guard, and by flight schools giving lessons in flying aircraft. (Its notoriety is that some of the September 11th terrorists received their early flight training here.)
