Ride the Ramp Program
One mile of roadway will only take you one mile. One mile of runway can take you around the world!
Martin County Airport at Witham Field offers tours to provide guests of all ages with an in-depth look at the daily operations of our airport. Participants will enjoy a guided tour on an open-air tram.
Airport staff will be your host for the entire tour, providing an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience you’ll not want to miss! Learn the history of Witham Field and interesting facts about the airport and the business partners who call the Martin County Airport at Witham Field “home.”
Tours are free and can be structured to emphasize careers in aviation, the commerce of the airport, or the aviation industry as a whole, and will be tailored to the visiting group to maximize the tour experience.
About the Airport

Today the airport is a thriving hub for commerce in Martin County and the South Florida region, creating an economic impact of over $784 million annually.
