Jumbolair Aviation Estates - Home of John Travolta
Beyond these gates lies the home of actors John and Kelly Travolta, and their daughter, Ella. This is an aircraft-friendly community just north of downtown Ocala where most, if not all, homeowners are pilots, and thus their properties include hangers to house their aircraft.
"Normal" people cannot get through the gates except to patronize a resort on the property, but photos of the Travolta home show it to be large and beautiful. Travolta flies in and out of the area frequently, often in his Boeing 707.
Jumbolair Aviation Estates is the "largest licensed, paved and lighted, private airport in the world."
It is said that if you want to get a glimpse of Travolta, you should hang around Walmart in the middle of the night, as he shops there occasionally at that time to avoid the crowds.
