Deep Forest Airport, Please

land your jet in jax
I've complained a little about the local JAXEX Craig airport, and while I am hoping it stays at a manageable size, I wanted to take this opportunity to redirect some of you to an airport I never knew existed. I am hoping some of the rich and famous who fly over my house will choose to hit up another rich and famous local resident to use his private runway instead. Please, all you robber barons, carpetbaggers, venture capitalists, elite socialites, property developers, and ponzi schemers, give your buddy George a call and use the Deep Forest Airport instead of JAXEX.

The runway at Deep Forest is 1.27 miles long. That's longer than either runway at Craig. You can land your G6 with no problems, according to Cutler Knupp, who apparently has a special pass to land at the private airport. I am hoping more G6 owners head for the Forest. Also those who own the Pilatus PC-24, the Cessna Citation Longitude, the Gulfstream G600, the Bombardier Global 6500 or 7500, and the Airbus ACJ319NEO.

Mostly, I want you to land down in Deep Forest because there have been three airplane crashes on the St. Johns River, near JAXEX, in the past six months. Eventually, someone is going to crash land over houses rather than the river. Therefore, I'd prefer more airplanes flying to airports that are away from population centers. Or else fewer crashes. 

Also, even if you're not in the jet set, maybe the owner of this private airfield, basically adjacent to Mayo Clinic, will allow you you land your turbo prop on the runway to save a life. But I'm not sure. You can call the number on the link to the irport.

Next time the city council wants to talk about expanding Craig at JAXEX, it might also be the right time to remind the politicians (who might be allowed to land their own G6s at Deep Forest if they approve the right zoning proposals for the owner of the airport) that there is another option, and it's been around for years. 

All other opinions aside, I hope Jacksonville does consider the Deep Forest site as a better JAXEX location in the future, and then plans ALL development around the location appropriately after the move. That's called planning.
