If some of the people in Ocala get their way to turn Marion County into another big city like Ft. Laud, the airport will happen eventually.. and so will more jobs, along with a lot more crime. It won't look like beautiful Marion Cnty in years to come.

I moved to Ocala from Jonesboro, Arkansas, which is 65 miles from Memphis. We had a twice a day Air Shuttle to Memphis for $ 49 each way. The plane is always booked full, and reservations need to be 2+ weeks in advance. This could be done in Ocala as the Federal Government has programs to sudsidize airlines to offer scheduled service from small cities to regional airports. It was very convenient to fly to Memphis ( 20 minutes) and then connect to a major airline, without having to re-pass through security. I think a shuttle to OIA (Orlando) would be a great benefit to Ocala, and help to attract business.
