I currently live in Brooklyn, NY. My wife and I are looking to move, we are currently looking at moving to Deltona, FL. I work in the Airline industry, I can pretty much transfer to any airport in the U.S. but some transfers may take a really long time to go through. This is the problem I am having with Deltona, FL. So what are some safe, family oriented, and affordable areas to live in that are near an airport?

I also work in the airline industry.

How international does the airport need to be? Do you need to have access to flights all over the world or just a regional airport that flies to all the big cities?

I wouldn't be flying out on a daily basis, I would be commuting to the airport on a daily basis tho. It just needs to be big enough that getting a transfer to it wouldn't be too hard.

Deltona used to be nice, but I would steer very clear of it.

Do you need to be near DAB, SFB or MCO?

There are probably quite a few, but are there any other aspects you are looking for in a community?

Check out Yulee and Fernandina Beach, FL which are quite close to Jacksonville International Airport. It's pretty safe, family-friendly with very good public schools (Nassau County is among the top dozen school districts in the state), not over-developed like much of Florida, near the beach, not hurricane-prone and quite affordable.

That did answer my question though. How international and big of an airport do you need? Or can you live by a small airport?

Sorry I've taken so long to respond guys, just been crazy with work and the newborn. I don't like saying it because of the negative view we have, but I work for TSA. So I can transfer to any airport that has TSA, which is all but a handful. Just usually, the bigger the airport, the more likely I am to get a transfer.
