Conveniently located only 3 miles from the business and financial center of Central Florida, Orlando Executive Airport (OEA), operated by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), is the perfect flight path for the corporate traveler. Convenient access to all of Orlando’s major highways puts the majority of industrial and business centers within minutes of the airport.
Central location and a long list of amenities also make Orlando Executive Airport the ideal spot to touch down en route to any of the area’s convention centers, major attractions, theme parks and beaches. In addition, “door-to-door” service makes the transition from air to ground transportation easy and effortless.
Orlando Executive Airport provides 24 hour service through our two fixed base operators, Sheltair Aviation Services (SAS) and Atlantic Aviation, an FAA air traffic control tower, and full ILS capability. Orlando Executive’s central location means that delegates will find numerous restaurants, hotels, stores and theaters within a 3 mile drive of the airport, as well as one of the most popular shopping malls in Orlando.

As a vital component of the area’s economy, Orlando Executive Airport offers many services to the community – including law enforcement, air ambulance, search/rescue capabilities, and the main reliever airport for Orlando International Airport (MCO). A central location, quality approaches and the ability to handle quick take-off demands make Orlando Executive ideally suited for these operations. In 2009 Orlando Executive’s aircraft operations totalled more than 108,000.
Central Florida’s first commercial airfield, Orlando Executive Airport was first dedicated as the Orlando Municipal Airport in 1928. Since that time, it has continually responded to the needs of a growing community – expanding services, updating facilities and modernizing equipment. Today, Orlando Executive is recognized as the area’s finest general aviation facility – and among the best of its kind in the state and the nation.
Situated on 1,056 acres owned by the City of Orlando, the airport is operated by GOAA with valuable input from the OEA Advisory Committee which continuously reviews the safe operation and facilities provided to the aviation community. This partnership adds value to the standing of OEA as a premier general aviation airport serving the entire Central Florida region. Both private and corporate aircraft facilities are available, providing business and pleasure travelers with a host of top-flight services and amenities for both based and itinerant aircraft customers.
The Airport that brought Commercial Aviation to Central Florida is still its finest General Aviation Facility.
