Case Study: A recent client developed a short list of requirements for site selection criteria. Smyrna Airport is pleased to have met these qualifications.

  • Adequate runway for our primary target (business class jets) market. This means at least 8000 feet of runway.
  • The location must be central to the largest amount of our potential customers.
  • There must be adequate hangar and shop space either existent or available space to build.
  • The local economy should be aviation friendly and have adequate sources of available workforce.
  • The locale should also provide within a reasonable distance some source of attraction or activity that would serve to attract and occupy short turn around customers.
  • There should be a desire for an inter-working relationship with local colleges and technical schools to provide the brightest training environment for our employee professional development.

The Airport Authority is now accepting proposals for lease space on the Airport.
