Two years ago, Georgia commemorated the centennial anniversary
of the state’s first beginnings in aviation. In 1907,
Ben T. Epps successfully piloted his hand-built aircraft 100 yards
across a cow pasture near Athens, Georgia.

Over the next 19 years, Epps would become one of the
state’s premiere aviation pioneers, paving the foundation for
an industry that is now one of the state’s leading economic
generators. From the world’s busiest commercial
airport, the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, to
Georgia’s largest industrial employer, the Robins Air Force
Base, aviation impacts nearly every Georgian in the state.
In celebration of this rich history and influence,
Georgia’s own Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation helped
underwrite the production of “Georgia Flight: The
History of Aviation in Georgia.” Join Aero-TV as writer
Marty Steiner, drawing from his extensive research and interviews,
shares a glimpse of Georgia’s vast aviation history.
