COOL HISTORY

People often wonder when they drive into The FIRM why the old planes and landing strips.  That’s because The FIRM is located at Keystone Heights Airport a general aviation and public use airport spanning 2,476 acres at an elevation of 196 feet (60 m) above mean sea level.  The airport is adjacent to Camp Blanding Joint Training Center and “Fly through History” Military Museum and Memorial Park. This museum at Camp Blanding is dedicated to the World War II units that trained here during the early 1940s.  The airport was commissioned in 1942 by the United States Army Air Forces. It was used as part of the Army Air Forces School of Applied Tactics (AAFSAT) tactical combat simulation school in Central and Northern Florida.  In 1947 it was turned over to the City of Keystone Heights and is now home to Express Air (a fixed-wing flight training school), The Florida International Rally and Motorsport Park, RallyPro Performance Driving School, International Security Academy, Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum, Warbird Restoration Center, and three FAA certified airframe and power plant mechanics.
