Treasure Coast International Airport (IATAFPRICAOKFPRFAA LIDFPR) is a public airport located three miles (5 km) northwest of the central business district of Fort Pierce, a city in St. Lucie CountyFloridaUnited States. It is owned by the St. Lucie Board of County Commissioners.[1]

The airport sees frequent use by various aviation flight schools in south Florida, including three based at the airport, for general aviation flight training traffic. The airport also hosts a Federal Inspection Station (FIS) administered by United States Customs & Border Protection, which makes it a frequent stop for private aircraft coming in and out of the Bahama Islands.

DayJet provided an on-demand jet air taxi service from this airport before they suspended operation in September 2008.

The history of the airport dates back to 1921 when The Commercial Club of Fort Pierce built an airport where the local American Legion building now stands on U.S. Route 1 for an airline that never got off the ground. Nine years later, the county purchased 1,600 acres (6.5 km2) of land that eventually became the current airport; however the first commercial airport was dedicated in 1935 in an area in the vicinity of U.S. Route 1 and Edwards Road.

The current airport, originally named Fort Pierce Airport, was leased during World War II by the U.S. Navy as an auxiliary field for pilots and flight crews from Naval Air Station Vero BeachNaval Air Station Melbourne and Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale for conducting daytime and nighttime field carrier landing practice (FCLP) prior to landing on actual aircraft carriers. Scout aircraft, dive bombers and torpedo attack bombers utilized the runways, which were redesigned by the military to better accommodate naval aviation training requirements. In 1947, the Navy disestablished operations and the U.S. Government conveyed the airport back to the county, to include two newly constructed runways, without charging for the improvements made.[2]

With little financial capital in county government to operate and maintain a modern airport, the facility languished for the next ten years, becoming overgrown with vegetation and subject to frequent grazing by cattle from nearby farms and ranches. During the 1960s and 1970s, major improvements took off with the construction of an airport terminal, modern hangars, airfield lighting, navigational aids and fuel facilities. Curtis King, who became the first full-time director in 1967, played an instrumental role in the development of the county's airport for 31 years.[3]

The airport continued to evolve as a general aviation facility, and even though two of four runways were decommissioned, one such former runway became the site of the Airport West Commerce Park, while Runway 9R/27L (later renamed 10R/28L) was lengthened and improved.

Runway 10L/28R was completed early 2010 costing $15.3 million. The recent completion of a north-south connector taxiway between training runway 10L/28R and runway 10R/28L reduces the need for training aircraft to use one of the primary runways for takeoffs and landings at the beginning and/or end of training flights, respectively.

Customer Reviews
NEMETH DESIGNS - AEROLITE 103 MSFS
Jonathon
Ultralight perfection. Gorgeous, excellent sounds, and it handles like a few bars with a fabric wing :) One of the top 2 ultralights in the sim.
SIMWORKS STUDIOS - ZENITH CH701 STOL MSFS
Jonathon
The best STOL LSA I have flown in sim. Excellent feel, sound, look, systems. This module captures the essence of the CH701 perfectly.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
Jonathon
Great value package. Looks, flies, sounds like a rickety little ultralight :) I love this module.
INIBUILDS - INISCENE BUFFALO NIAGARA KBUF MSFS
Johannes
Beautiful scenery of this airport. (This review replaces my old review, after I have solved my personal problems with a conflicting other scenery). Th-
e scenery has many details, that I like very much. I only am missing people inside the terminal.
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS
Bryant
It is a nice model overall and flies well. The reason I am calling it a couple of stars short is because the VC texturing (and modeling of certain parts of the VC) look outdated as if they are a port-over from FS9/X? Surely this can be upgraded to more current standards?
PROJECT MAX - CYZF YELLOWKNIFE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
David
A well done scenery and worth the purchase especially at this price point. It's nice to see northern Canadian airports getting some attention.
SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS
Chuck
I would like to modify my previous review. The plane honestly deserves five stars. I did not mean to suggest that it needed to be altered in order to function correctly. I was apparently the only one who had the gear problem and I fixed it with help from the good people at SwissMilSim.
BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V7.2 - MSFS
Michael
The trees look incredible, and autochanging seasons is great. The changes to the trees in the summer are subtle but make the sim so much better. I wish I had purchased this sooner.
BIJAN HABASHI - PROJECT: ISLANDS, SUNKEN BOATS, - MSFS
Michael
Amazing product, keep up the great work! I look forward to future updates.
FSIPANEL - FSIPANEL 2020 STANDARD EDITION MSFS
Jerry
Program does what it says it's going to do, easily and without too much fuss. Would be 5 stars except I feel the price is too high. Advanced edition offered nothing I was interested in so I opted for the Standard version and don't regret the purchase (except for price.) You can use any of the included default aircraft in any flavor of Microsoft Flight Simulator, and also add most any 3rd party aircraft (SWS Kodiak, JF Turbo Arrows, Carenados, PMDG, etc.) Not sure about helicopters as I'm not interested in rotary wings but I'm sure it's mentioned somewhere. Loa-
d a plane onto a runway, turn on the flight director and within a minute you can setup an approach to fly over and over again. Start downwind one time then change the approach to vectors, left or right traffic. Change altitudes, weather, wind. Developer has numerous videos on YouTube.
