    The Flying Little River Homeowners' Association (FLRHA)through its non-paid board or directors, voted in by the membership, manages day to day operations and is responsible for the budget of the association. Most of the physical work is also done by volunteers, including road and runway maintence and mowing.

    1. Are there property restrictions?

    Yes, the airpark was originally platted as five separate subdivisions, each with its own set of covenants to conserve and protect the purpose and quality of the airpark. Currently the FLRHA board is working on harmonizing the differences in the covenances. Each set of restrictions is slightly different, but basically they deal with what is allowed or prohibited in each subdivision, such as building lot setbacks, whether farm animals can be had, maintenance of lots in a tidy fashion. The actual deed restrictions will be available through your realtor when you become interested in a specific property or can be found at the Suwannee County title office in Live Oak.

    1. What is the local area like?

    First of all, this is not what people think of when they think of Florida, ie. theme parks, and beaches. This is the "Old Florida", the slower paced, more respectfull, layed back, rural Florida. Even the county seat, Live Oak, is very much a "hometown" kind of place where people can still let their children play outside together, and where the "Christmas On The Square" parade has the main street lined with lounge chairs to watch friends and family participate. The topography is one of gently rolling hills with vegetable, hay, and dairy farms and cultivated pine forests. Some of our closest neighbors are cows. The people are friendly and courteous greeting one with "Miss Bonnie" or Mr. Jon, a very respectfull southern greeting.
    The county is full of natural beauty which is available to all through county and state parks and is home to a vast system of underground caves and fresh water springs, a favorite of cave divers. The Suwannee, Santa Fe, and Itchetucknee Rivers all provide great water experiences of fishing, swimming, and boating.
