The Thomaston Upson County Airport Authority has received a grant from the FAA through the Georgia Dept. of Transportation’s Aviation Programs to complete the reimbursement for construction of thirty T-hangars and one corporate hangar. The project which began in August of 2009 and was completed in September of 2010 increased the ability to store and service aircraft at the Thomaston Upson County Airport by more than thirty percent. Financing in the amount of $1,684,287.00 was provided by United Bank, and with the receipt of $563,304.00 in the final phase of reimbursement that debt has been paid in full. The Airport Authority would like to take this opportunity to express their gratitude to our citizens, local leaders, the FAA and GDOT for the support in creating and improving our airport as a gateway to our community.
