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. Barnstormer’s is open for lunch and dinner Wednesdays – Sundays. On Saturdays and Sundays the restaurant opens at 8 a.m. to serve breakfast as well.
Peach State Aerodrome is also home to the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Candler Field Museum, which is currently closed to the public as it raises money for a new 7,700 sq.ft. building to display its collection of artifacts, planes, and automobiles and allow for more educational space for the growing Youth Aviation Program. Youth Aviation Program students and mentors continues to meet Wednesdays and Saturdays in the Doug Davis Hangar to work on their aviation-related projects. 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.
