Stennis International Airport’s strategic location is a great advantage for both scientific and military groups with DoD air traffic arriving and departing daily. With approximately 50% of county land and water dedicated to NASA and Department of Defense operations for the 125,000 acre noise and vibration buffer zone, Hancock County hosts one of the largest, most valuable, joint military centers in the United States right next door at Stennis Space Center with DoD joint use agreements currently in place.

We are deeply proud and supportive of the military and space agency operations here.
