Amelia’s Little Airport

Dramatic nighttime lighting highlights the unique design of the Fernandina Beach (Florida) Municipal Airport Terminal building. The design pays homage to the U.S. Navy F4U Corsair fighter plane that flew training missions from this airfield during WWII.

A well-executed design that looks stunning at night. I’m sure this will be somewhat of an attraction here in Northeast Florida as the building will feature all types of memorabilia from the airfield’s connection to the Corsair and the training of Naval aviators during World War II.

Amelia Island’s New Airport Terminal – A Bold Design Executed Flawlessly

The Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Florida airport terminal is almost complete and the design is unique and stunning! Designed to pay homage to the U.S. Navy Corsair fighter from World War II.


It’s sure to be a tourist attraction and I believe the designers should get a tip of the hat for taking such a bold idea and executing it to perfection. Here the workers are installing the last of the glass panels that form the skylight-canopy.


Everywhere you look you see quality touches and the attention to detail is unmatched anywhere in the City of Fernandina Beach.

The runway side of the terminal is the airplane’s cowling – notice the Pratt & Whitney Eagle logo.


What a cool bicycle rack!


The Corsair has landed!

Early stages of construction from January of this year.

What a lovely air terminal to welcome visitors and residents alike to beautiful Amelia Island. If you’re ever passing through extreme Northeast Florida, by all means, take the time to stop in and check out our terminal. They’ll be historical displays featured inside the three-story lobby specifically tailored to recognize our military heritage and the brave aviators that flew the Navy Corsairs during the War.

Thanks for stopping by!
