HINESVILLE, GA / November 22, 2011/ GENERAL AVIATION NEWS / Visitors seeking Georgia’s famed southern hospitality need look no further than Midcoast Regional Airport at Wright Army Airfield – however, this recent addition to the Avfuel network of FBOs offers much more than charm alone. Named for its convenient position between the commercial hubs of Savannah and Brunswick, as well as being located midway between Charleston, SC and Jacksonville, FL, Midcoast Regional Airport opened for operation in November 2007.
Situated within Fort Stewart, the largest Army installation east of the Mississippi River, the airport is one of only 23 joint-use civilian/military airports in the United States.The state-of-the-art terminal building boasts a comfortable lounge, widescreen television, fully-equipped conference room, and Wi-Fi throughout. Six rocking chairs outside the front entrance invite guests to relax in the fresh coastal air. Quick turns and overnight parking are available on the spacious ramp, and hangar space is available with a reservation.
“I’ve been a pilot for over 41 years,” said Midcoast Regional Airport General Manager Charlie Martin, “and I feel that my experiences as a pilot, aircraft owner, and visitor of many FBOs keep me and my staff a step ahead of pilots’ needs and expectations.” To that end, pilots have access to quiet snooze rooms, showers, flight planning facilities, crew cars and refreshments, among other amenities. The staff and crew of Midcoast Regional Airport are always ready to assist with any questions or guest needs. “Small acts of kindness go a long way,” said Martin. “Our main goal is to make our guests feel welcome; to feel at home.”
“The effortless service and attention to detail on the part of Midcoast Regional Airport are crucial to delivering a positive FBO experience,” said Avfuel Director of Marketing Marci Ammerman. “Avfuel is honored that our products and solutions are in line with Midcoast’s goals and vision.”Midcoast Regional Airport is central to a number of Georgia attractions, including the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum; the historic and cultural draws of Savannah and the coastal vacation paradise of Saint Simons Island.
