Local Flight Services

A good portion of the flight activity at SRQ is general aviation; visitors arriving and departing by personal, corporate and chartered aircraft; based aircraft coming and going to destinations of their choosing; local flights for a variety of purposes. Excellent facilities are here to serve the needs of general aviation. Two long runways have ILS, GPS and VOR instrument approaches, full length parallel taxiways on both sides, radar service from Tampa Approach, and a Control Tower.
Two full service fixed base operators (FBO) serve SRQ. They will compete for your business providing fuel, hangars, tie down, aircraft maintenance, flight instruction, aircraft rental and charter, catering, oxygen - big city services with small town convenience. For more information about our fixed base operators go to "FBOs".
The airport Authority leases 158 T-hangars directly to individual aircraft owners.  For information about leasing a T-hangar  see "SMAA T-hangar"
