Default Airport for The Villages

My East coast brother has a place in The Villages and I'm considering an occasional wintertime visit. Naturally, I would fly my RV (from here in western Oregon) so it raises the question: what nearby aerodromes are convenient to The Villages and suitable for an experimental airplane? (Maybe "convenient" is too strong a word -- nothing looks "convenient".)

Can someone who flies to The Villages weigh in, please?

Thanks,
Joe

I've flown into Leesburg, KLEE, when visiting friends in The Villages. Very nice friendly GA airport and fairly convenient.

Default kLEE just south of The Villages

I'll second KLEE! Super nice and supportive. Just a 15 or 20 minute drive to the villages.

Default KLEE it is!

That will work! Leesburg looks like just the ticket and $3.99 self-service gas is the icing on the cake.

Thank you, Tom and Paul.

+3.

Affordable self service. You can rent a car at the FBO. Maybe a 25 minute drive to the villages. They even let me change my oil on the ramp once when I was due mid-trip!
