“Peter O. Knight is an airport on Davis Islands, five minutes (3 NM or 5.6 km or 3.5 mi) from downtown Tampa, Florida. Built as a Works Progress Administration project, it was Tampa’s main airport from 1935 to 1945, and is still used by general aviation operators today because of its proximity to the central city.”

“The airport was named for prominent attorney and businessman Peter O. Knight, namesake of Holland & Knight. The airport’s original administration building was torn down in the 1960s, and replaced by the current building. Although seaplanes aren’t quite as popular anymore,

the basin is still there at Davis Islands”, the developers explain.
