How Much Is That Airport On Craigslist?
Itís no secret that flying is often a big hassle. Sure, the reward of being whisked away to far corners of the globe is awesome, but with the TSA wanting even more of our information, we just want some way to get around the whole thing. Thatís why weíre thinking about buying our own airport for the private plane that we donít (just yet).
Up for sale just west of Ft. Myers, Florida is an airport on Pine Island. Theyíre only asking $1.6 million, and they are prepared to receive a bunch of random emails since itís for sale on Craigslist. The airport features a 2,700-foot grass runway you'll have to keep well-mowed on about 19 acres of land; we might want to consider buying a Cessna rather than a Gulfstream.
If you act now, the owner is willing to throw in a couple extra perks; youíll get seven hangars, a barn, a house, and a zoning permit that will allow for the construction of an additional 13 hangars. The owner bought the land in 2002, but doesnít want to spend the rest of his retirement mowing all that grass. His loss is our gain, but first we need to head over to the Coinstar machine to cash in our change.
