A History of Merritt Island Airport




Merritt Island Airportis a general aviation airport serving the local aviation needs of Merritt Island, Cocoa, and the rest of Brevard County, Florida.

Merritt Island Airport is located on the southern peninsula of Merritt Island between the Indian River and the Banana River. The airport’s single runway extends into Newfound Harbor, which is part of the Banana River.In the early 1940’s, the Brevard County Mosquito Control District constructed the Central Brevard Airport. The airfield included two sod landing strips:

(1) a north-south strip measuring approximately 1,800 feet in length; and,
(2) a northwest southeast strip measuring approximately 3,000 feet in length.

An operations building and maintenance hangar were located on the south side of the airfield. The Mosquito Control District had a maintenance hangar on the north side of the airfield. The north-south landing strip was eventually abandoned. Various facilities including the T-hangars currently occupy this area.

The Brevard County Mosquito Control District deeded the airport property over to the Titusville-Cocoa Airport Authority in exchange for ten acres of land located within Space Coast Regional Airport. This land is currently used by Brevard County as headquarters for the Mosquito Control District.
