Collier County Honor Flight’s mission is to transport local Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices. Support for these trips is provided by volunteers and is at no cost to the veterans. Trips are simply not possible without public support.
The Naples chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) founded the Young Eagles program in 1992, which gives youth one-on-one flights with experienced pilots. The nationwide effort, which is the only program of its kind, has taken nearly two million kids up in the air, with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.
Naples Airport is the recipient of the 2015 J. Bryan Cooper Environmental Award, General Aviation Airport, from Florida Airports Council for its water-management system upgrade to remove an open water canal from airside and create a water-management pond outside the primary airport property. This work improves water quality, and removed a major wildlife attractant from the immediate airside area.
Two miles of winding trails, boardwalks and bridges connect Golden Gate Parkway to central Naples, including 4 miles along Naples Airport. The airport is proud to support the Gordon River Greenway, a project that represents nearly three decades of planning and effort.
NAA is honored to provide space at Naples Airport for the Naples Museum of Military History.
We have thousands of military artifacts from all branches of the military. The museum is located at the Naples Airport, which was originally built by the Army Corps of Engineers to train pilots for the Pacific theater in World War II.
What started out as a 900 sq. ft. museum honoring military aviation in World War II has evolved into so much more. You can now see historical artifacts dating back to the Revolutionary War and all the way up to the present day Iraq & Afghanistan conflicts.
It is open every day free of charge, although donations are gratefully accepted.
Inside and outside of the airport, the NAA team is committed to the Naples community. More than 1,200 hours of employee time has been spent volunteering in the community.
