For more than six decades, Florida Airmotive has managed Palm Beach County’s general aviation airport, a relatively quiet, homespun facility at the corner of Lantana Road and Congress Avenue.
The main terminal is designed to look like a Florida farmhouse, with wooden benches and model airplanes dangling from the ceiling. The airport’s main security gate is open during business hours, allowing cars to drive onto the airfield. Pilots store boats and cars in their rented hangars. Pets watch as their owners tinker with airplanes.
