Most travelers coming to Orlando via airplane fly through Orlando International Airport. However, more and more of them are discovering the benefits of flying into nearby Sanford at the Orlando Sanford International Airport.
It might surprise you to learn that the Orlando Sanford International Airport once began life as a Naval Air Station from 1942 through 1969. It remained uncontrolled until the early 1970s where it eventually began a new life as a non-FAA facility. Then it rose to stardom in 1992 when parts of Passenger 57, an action-packed movie with Wesley Snipes were filmed. Soon after, a new control tower was built and the airport became FAA regulated, putting it back on the map for domestic and international air travel.
