I am a retired professor from the U. of Florida who is writing a guidebook to the Hillsborough River. In my final chapter I write about the Peter O. Knight Airport, but am unsure about the following: I read where one hundred planes use hangars there, but my editor wants to know if any regularly scheduled flights use the airport.
Can you help me with this?

Thanks.

Hello, is there a reason the wind typically appears to blow east to west when I would expect a sea-breeze to cause the reverse (west to east) because of the airport's proximity to the coast.
