Cecil Airport (IATA: VQQ, ICAO: KVQQ, FAA LID: VQQ) is a public joint civil-military airport and spaceport located in Jacksonville, Florida. The airport is owned by the Jacksonville Aviation Authority and services military aircraft, corporate aircraft, general aviation, and air cargo. The Florida Army National Guard’s primary Army Aviation Support Facility and the U.S. Coast Guard’s Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) are also located here, the former operating CH-47 Chinook, UH-60 Blackhawk, UH-72 Lakota and C-12 Huron aircraft, while the latter operates the MH-65C Dolphin helicopter.
Cecil Field, commonly known as either “Cecil” or “Cecil Commerce Center”, also houses the FSCJ (Florida State College Jacksonville) aviation course hangar and associated training aircraft. Sunrise Aviation, a flight training school and pilot supplies vendor is the flight training provider for FSCJ’s aviation program. Facilities operated by major aerospace firms such as Boeing and Northrop Grumman are also located at Cecil, providing major maintenance and overhaul services for a variety of U.S. military aircraft.
In 2010, Cecil Field became the United States’ eighth licensed commercial spaceport and the first in Florida authorized to fly space vehicles that take off and land horizontally.
The NZC identifier was the airport’s previous FAA identifier when it was Naval Air Station Cecil Field, its former name until its closure as a naval air station in 1999. The NZC IATA code is now allocated to Maria Reiche Neuman Airport (IATA: NZC, ICAO: SPZA).
