Ormond Beach Municipal Airport (KOMN) is owned and operated by the City of Ormond Beach, Florida. The airport is located on 1,128 acres of land just east of Interstate 95, north of the Tomoka River and west of U.S. Highway 1.
Ormond Beach Municipal Airport was first established in 1943 as a naval aviation training field. The airport, like many other smaller military airports, was deeded to the city in 1959 by the Federal Government. The airport facility offers two intersecting runways 8/26 and 17/35, which are 4,004 feet and 3,701 feet respectively. It also offers six taxiways that are fully lighted.
There are approximately 170 aircraft based at the airport with approximately 127,000 annual operations (takeoffs or landings). The airport is designated by the Federal Aviation Administration as a publicly-owned, public-use general aviation facility.
The airport is served by an FAA funded Air Traffic Control Tower. Class D airspace surrounds the airport during the times the tower is open. Pilots should watch out for the overlying Class C airspace extending out from Daytona Beach International Airport.
The airport has both VOR and GPS approaches making it useful for instrument training as well as VFR training with quick access to nearby VFR practice areas.

Ormond Beach Florida Radar Loop
The Current Radar map shows areas of current precipitation. A weather radar is used to locate precipitation, calculate its motion, estimate its type (rain, snow, hail, etc.), and forecast its future position and intensity. Modern weather radars are mostly doppler radars, capable of detecting the motion of rain droplets in addition to intensity of the precipitation. Both types of data can be analyzed to determine the structure of storms and their potential to cause severe weather. Precipitation type is indicated by the color – green is rain, pink is a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet, and/or snow, and blue is snow.
Digital radar systems now have capabilities far beyond what their predecessors only dreamed of. Digital systems now offer storm tracking surveillance. This provides users with the ability to acquire detailed information of each storm being tracked. Storms are first identified by the radar by matching the raw data received from the radar pulse to some sort of template, preprogrammed into the system. Once the storm is identified; speed, distance covered, direction, and Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) of the storm are all tracked and recorded into a memory location of the radar in order to be utilized later. In order for a storm to be identified it would have to meet the definitions of a storm, as programed by the manufacturer. Otherwise, any cloud could be mistaken for a storm. Usually the storm must show signs of organization. The storm must have a core or a more intense center to be identified and tracked by digital radar tracking systems.
