Herlong Recreational Airport (HEG)
Herlong Recreational Airport (HEG) is Jacksonville's premier general aviation recreational and sport flying airport. In 2001, Herlong (HEG) was awarded the Florida Department of Transportation's General Aviation Airport of the Year award. The airport property covers 1,434 acres of land, is home to approximately 140 based aircraft and features 3,500-foot and 4,000-foot runways. Located approximately 11 miles southwest of downtown Jacksonville, activity at Herlong (HEG) includes single and twin-engine aircraft, gliders, helicopters, ultra-lights, corporate jets and turbo-prop aircraft, and skydiving operations. As the recreational airport in Jacksonville's four-airport system, Herlong (HEG) supports Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) by accommodating sport aeronautical operations, thereby limiting general aviation activity at JAX.

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) serves as the Fixed Base Operator at Herlong (HEG), providing a terminal for pilots, hangar space, tie-down areas and fueling. Last year, Herlong Recreational Airport (HEG) reported more than 75,000 operations (take-offs and landings). And in 1999, JAA opened a new 20,400-square-foot bulk hangar capable of housing multiple aircraft as well as office space for tenants.

A recent economic impact study conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) revealed that Herlong Airport contributes over $21.5 million to the local economy.

The existing terminal was renovated in 2001 to add more pilot amenities and a self-fueling island for pilots to fuel aircraft before and after normal hours of airport operations. The JAA recently built 24 new individual T-Hangers to meet the demand for aircraft storage.
