Florida is a magnet for tourists from the United States and from the rest of the world. Some of the main attractions are theme parks, including Disney World, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Legoland, Universal, and more.
For all these reasons, Florida has many airports to receive visitors and goods. But this is not the only reason. Florida also has many military bases and the space coast.
Florida is home to several military airports that serve various branches of the United States Armed Forces.
These military airports support military operations, training exercises, and national defense.
NASA has the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) on Merritt Island, Florida. KSC serves as a major launch site for NASA's human spaceflight missions.
While KSC does not operate as a traditional airport, it has a landing facility known as the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF), which was used by the Space Shuttle orbiters for returning to Earth.
The SLF runway can accommodate a variety of aircraft, including NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft and other research and support aircraft. Source: NASA.
