The Airport offers first -class service to both business and pleasure aircraft through its full-service FBO. Pilots will find the longest general aviation runway in the metro Atlanta area at 6,305' long, recently reconstructed with concrete.
A full ILS and new High Intensity Runway Lights will assist the pilot in locating the runway in marginal weather conditions.

North Apron and Taxilane Connector Project
The first phase of the four-month project will see the construction of a 350-foot new taxilane connector between the north apron and taxiway A between A1 and A2 to reduce congestion and improve safety of aircraft movements on the north apron. Then work will begin on 6 acres of pavement improvements, including rehabilitating and expanding the north apron between the restaurant and eastward to the control tower.
Crews will work on drainage structures at area in front of the tower and haul off excess dirt from job site, grass and matting slopes. The northwest apron connector at A1 will be closed periodically.
Work has begun on the Taxiway Bravo run-up pad.
A MALSF is the approach lighting system to be installed on the approach end of Runway 27 (east end of airport). The MALSF consists of a 1,700-foot-long array of lights. The runway lighting is controlled by the air traffic control tower from 0700-2300 and can be switched on by the pilot via radio when the tower is closed. MALSF system will consist of the following light fixture components:
- 7 light bars each with 5 steady burning white fixtures
- 5 sequence flashing white fixtures
- Threshold bar of 18 steady burning green fixtures.
Crews will be finishing the termination of the electronic running from shelter to poles and begin tying the MALSF into the control tower’s system.
The contractor reviewed the remaining punch list of items needed to complete the project and determined that a runway closure of three to four nights is needed.
NOTE: Four nighttime runway closures are scheduled for Jan. 30 through Feb. 3. The runway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day from Monday, Jan. 30, through 6 a.m. Friday, Feb. 3.
Airfield Re-Marking and Rubber Removal Project
The State of Georgia has provided notice that the airport’s airfield re-marking and rubber removal project is tentatively funded.
The Airfield Re-Marking and Rubber Removal Project will include the remarking of the runway, all taxiways, and the south apron. Additionally, the contractor will remove the rubber deposit accumulations on the runway touchdown areas. During the 12-day project, four (4) nighttime closures of the runway will be necessary. Each taxiway will be closed during marking operations on the taxiways, but the runway will remain open during taxiway marking operations which will also take place at night.
Every effort will be made to provide as much advance notice as possible, with a minimum of 72 hours notice prior to a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. runway closing.
Contracts have been executed. Application of markings is weather dependent and will be scheduled in the future when the weather is suitable.
Town Center CID Aviation Noonday Creek Trail Park
The Board recently approved a proposal by the Town Center Community Improvement District (TCCID) to construct an aviation park on airport property. It is to be located at the corner of Barrett Lakes Boulevard and Cobb Place Boulevard. The approximately three-acre park concept will serve as an observation area for the public to view aircraft landing and taking off, and will also serve as a trail park for Noonday Creek Trail.
TCCID will secure 100 percent of the design and construction costs for development of the proposed aviation park through a combination of TCCID allocated funding and philanthropic contributions to the Town Center Community Alliance.
The new Zagster Bike Rental operation already on the corner of Barrett Lakes Blvd and Cobb Place Boulevard is currently a very popular rental location.
Construction of the aviation park is anticipated to start in February.
The Airport Strategic Planning Board continues to review information on the Airport Master Plan Update. The Airport Board will advise the County on an appropriate plan for the future development of the airport. The Master Plan Update includes identifying needs over the next 20 years, evaluating potential development options, and identifying airfield improvements needed to meet FAA development/safety standards. Comments are welcome to firstname.lastname@example.org.
