Pictured is the airport terminal, or Fixed Base Operator (FBO), located at 415 Fourth Ramp at the Decatur County Industrial Park on U.S. Highway 27, five miles Northwest of Bainbridge.
Located to the east of the new airport terminal at the County’s Industrial Park is a World War II-era double hangar that is currently rented for private plane storage. Decatur County Commissioners have plans to repair and upgrade this historic building, first built by the Department of Defense as part of the Bainbridge Army Airfield, in 1943.
