Spruce Creek Private Airport | Where Everybody Owns an Airplane

Spruce Creek is the world’s largest fly-in community, which also are called airparks. Spruce Creek Airport is a private airport located in south of the central business district of Daytona Beach, in Volusia County, Florida, United States. It was originally constructed during World War II as an outlying field (OLF) to nearby Naval Air Station DeLand and NAS Daytona Beach. OLF Spruce Creek originally had four paved 4,000 foot runways and was abandoned by the U.S. Navy in 1946.
