Our Location

Ferguson Airport is located beneath a shelf of NAS Pensacola’s Sherman Field Class C airspace.  Three miles north and west of the field, the bottom of the Class C airspace descends from 1400 to 700 ft.  To the east and south of the field, the Class C airspace is at the surface.  Do not descend into the landing pattern. Rather, descend north or northwest of the field and enter the traffic pattern at 527 ft. MSL (500 ft. AGL).


Always watch for the Blue Angels practicing.  Call Ferguson Airport for their latest schedule or Gainesville FSS. (800) 992-7433
