Two Plans of Attack

As the Atlanta metro spreads out in all directions, two Georgia airports have seen concurrent growth.

Whitman says Winder-Barrow is “definitely” prepared for the introduction of the very light jets. “We already have all the infrastructure in place. And then also with a tower coming online and the ILS, we’ll definitely have everything in place that we’ll need.”

Whitman sees the airport playing a role also as the micro jets start to come into action. The airport’s location, just outside of Class B airspace, makes it an attractive alternative to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport.
