Chapter 1484

Williston, FL

Welcome to EAA Chapter #1484 Webpage

Williston Municipal Airport (FAA LIDX60) is a city-owned, public-use airport located two nautical miles (4 km) southwest of the central business district of Williston, a city in Levy County, Florida, United States. Commonly referred to as Williston Airport, it is located 23 miles (37 km) southwest of Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV). Opened in 1974 for public use, it does not have a control tower.  This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.

Formerly known as Montbrook Army Air Field during World War II, the airfield was opened as a US Army Air Forces installation on January 1, 1942. It appears to have been closed by the end of 1944.  In 1974, the facility was deeded to the City of Williston. It serves as a basic utility airport in Levy County for the City of ArcherCity of BronsonCity of McIntoshCity of Reddick and the City of Williston. It is one of two airports in the county, serving alongside the George T. Lewis Airport in Cedar Key  A planned upgrade of the airport slowly started with annexation of land in 1988. In 1992, it was selected as a preferred location for a regional airport within 20 miles (32 km). A second, larger, runway was completed by 2002 and allowed for jet aircraft to use the facility. An Automated Weather Observation Station (AWOS) was installed at the airport by the end of 2005. Future upgrades on the 2,000 acre (8 km²) site include additional hangars, a corporate hangar park and a new fixed-base operator.
