airport.jpegI really wish there was an airport in Sandy Springs. I think that every growing city needs a nice airport to help it grow. PDK (DeKalb Peachtree Airport) is a great asset that adds to the community. (There are many people who would disagree) I am biased since I love going to the airport and watching the planes taking off and landing. I am a self described airplane nut. I like everything airplanes.

According to the FAA, Sandy Springs has 109 registered aircraft owners and 271 licensed pilots (not including student pilots). I think this would be a great start to argue that all these aircraft owners and pilots need an airport close to where they live. Politically, these owners and pilots would be a great demographic for any aspiring local politician. Maybe Mayor Galambos and our fine Sandy Springs City Council will put aside their work to find a plush nice City Hall home and start buying some acreage to put a nice airport with a 6000 ft runway that can handle many types of aircraft. A crosswind runway would be nice as well. I think we can make the surrounding areas green space as well. We can call it Sandy Springs City Airport (SSC).

Do you think we need an airport?

  1. Hi! Don’t you think that PDK is pretty close by? We love their “new” park and playground. Having grown up where there wasn’t an airport until you got to the “big city,” I always thought that having PDK and airplanes to watch was a big deal!

    Have a great day!
