Marathon General Aviation

Marathon General Aviation


When is Marathon GA going to start following the rest of the country and lowering gas prices?
Are there any flying clubs at this airport? Maybe moving down in a few months and I'm trying to research options in the area. Thank you.
Here is a March 2019 Cessna 310 Sunset Departure Flight from the Florida Key , Marathon Key KMTH is heading to Palatka, Fl (28J) and a night arrival. Only the departure from KMTH is filmed but Foreflight recording shows entire flight path and environment. Fly along as co-pilot and enjoy this short flight.
Hi Folks, I am looking for a Cirrus SR 22 or 20 owner who would not mind taking me for a ride. I am close to finishing me pilots licence with the FL Keys Flight Academy and I am considering the Cirrus as a first plane, but have not had the opportunity to ride/fly one. I'll even pay for the gas;-)
Stayed for 5 nights! Great service and reasonable prices. They had the rental car on the ramp when we landed. We love visiting you at Sun N Fun and finally made it down for a visit (it’s only been 2 years in the making)!
What a great experience flying in here the other day. And talk about quality service from Jessie! This girl needs some recognition for her efforts at KMTH!

We have everything you would expect from a first class FBO.

Marathon General Aviation is the premier, full-service FBO located in the heart of the Florida Keys, dedicated solely to the piston aircraft. You won't get lost amongst the jets and airliners here: it's a piston paradise! We are located at the approach end of 25 at the east end of the field just off of the Alpha 5. Our NATA safety 1st line crew will guide you safely on the ramp (131.45) while our courteous customer service staff can offer everything you need to make your stay a memorable one.

"This is not a poster, it's a piece of art!"

NAS Key West Southernmost Air Spectacular celebrates this year's theme - Women in Aviation, with our second piece of artistry. Women have been involved in aviation from the beginnings of both lighter-than air travel and as airplanes, helicopters and space travel were developed.

The graphic artist who designed this was inspired by the vintage imagery and illustrations that portrayed these amazing women - reflecting aviation history within the design itself. Mentors to younger women including Amelia Earhart, Jacqueline Cochran, Sally Ride and so many more.

The Lockheed Electra, prominently positioned in the center of the design, is the model that gained considerable fame as the aircraft flown by Amelia Earhart on her ill-fated around-the-world expedition in 1937.

The poster along with other air show memorabilia will be available to purchase during the 2019 NAS Key West Southernmost Air Spectacular featuring U.S. Navy Blue Angels on March 30 and 31. Bring yours to our V.I.P. tent and have it signed by one of our female aviation special guests.

The event is open to all of The Florida Keys & Key West, so buy your tickets now... before it's too late. General admission and parking are free, tickets for reserved seating are still available at
