Marianna Municipal Airport (ICAO: KMAIFAA LID: MAI) is a public airport five miles northeast of Marianna, in Jackson County, Florida. It is owned by the Marianna Municipal Airport Authority.[1] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013 categorized it as a general aviation airport.[2] It was formerly Graham Air Base.

Many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is MAI to the FAA and has no IATA code. (IATA assigned MAI to Mangochi, Malawi).

History

Military use

Civil use

National Airlines (NA) pulled its Convairs out of Marianna in 1961 and the airport has had few or no airline flights since.

The airport has two 4,900-foot (1,500 m) by 100-foot (30 m) intersecting hard surface runways with a pavement strength of 56,500 pounds single wheel load. Runway 18/36 is the primary runway. Although the USAF control tower and base operations building remain on the flight line, the airport has been an uncontrolled field for its entire time as a civil airport.

The airport continues to see military aircraft, with a third of the airport's operations normally being transient military training flights, mostly Army helicopters from Fort Rucker and Navy helicopters from Naval Air Station Whiting Field.[3]

Facilities

The airport covers 2,400 acres (970 ha) at an elevation of 110 feet (34 m). It has two operational asphalt runways: Rwy 8/26 is 4,895 by 100 feet (1,492 x 30 m) and Rwy 18/36 is 4,896 by 100 feet (1,492 x 30 m).[1]

In the year ending March 9, 2009 the airport had 28,016 aircraft operations, average 76 per day: 67% general aviation and 33% military. 30 aircraft were then based at the airport: 66.7% single-engine, 20% multi-engine, 6.7% helicopter and 6.7% glider.[1]
