Located an hour south of Atlanta just outside the quaint town of Williamson, Ga., is Peach State Aerodrome, a vibrant public/private airport community modeled after the original Atlanta airport, Candler Field.
The Aerodrome features a pristine 3,000 ft. grass runway, fuel farm, and hangar space. Also located on the property of Peach State Aerodrome is Barnstormer’s Grill & Event Center. Popular among pilots and locals, Barnstormer’s Grill serves up popular American fare, including burgers, steaks, sandwiches, and seafood Tuesdays – Saturdays. On Sundays, the restaurant offers its popular Southern-style lunch buffet.
Most artifacts, planes, and automobiles on display by Candler Field Museum are housed in Hangar 349, the largest hangar on the property, which is modeled after the original Candler Field’s American Airways hangar. Just adjacent to Peach State Aerodrome is Peach State Airpark, a planned aviation community featuring hangar homes with direct access to the runway.
Peach State Aerodrome owners, Keven and Linda Sasser, look forward to continuing to develop a thriving airport community by adding new hangars, building “hangarminiums,” hosting fly-ins and other community events, growing Barnstormer’s Grill & Event Center, and continuing to support the Candler Field Museum and the Youth Aviation Program.
