I have been an active user and lessee of a parcel for construction of a corporate hangar for nearly 15 years. The services have exceeded my expectations in every aspect. From a business perspective, I view the Michael J. Smith Field as a critical community and regional asset. So much so that we located and invested here in reliance upon the airport’s existence.

The Michael J. Smith Airport is a terrific asset on the Crystal Coast, providing quick and easy access to Historic Downtown Beaufort, world-class fishing, and fantastic seafood dining. All beach areas are within a short drive; and second home owners are just a short drive to their destinations. The service is top-notch and all Airport employees will graciously assist you in reaching your destination.

Jarrett Bay customers love the convenience of flying into the Michael J. Smith Airport. Within minutes, they can be at the boatyard visiting with our design team or project managers. Time is in short supply, so to have the ability to step off of your plane and onto your boat in 10 minutes is something that you can't put a price tag on.

The Michael J. Smith Airport provides excellent access to all private jet services offering pilot rest areas as well as rental car services. Chad and his crew truly understand the needs of private pilots and do their very best to accommodate the flight crew as well as passengers. This is truly the definition of old fashioned southern hospitality.
