Van, Erik & LAbirders,

What I can't quite understand is that there is already an airport
about 20 miles away as-the-gull-flies (30 by road) from Elmer's,
so why do we need another one?

The South Lafourche Leonard Miller Jr. Airport is in Galliano and
is owned by the Greater Lafourche Port Commission. As far as
I know it is open for public use. It supports heli, single engine
and small jet traffic, with 20,000+ aircraft operations per year
according to the most recent stats(2012-2013).
