Suburban Atlanta Airport Calls Its New Event 'Salute America
Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport in Paulding County, GA, has
firmed up plans for its inaugural airshow, set for October 20th of
At a meeting last week, the Airport Authority settled on the
date and the name "Salute America 2012" for its first foray into
the air show arena. A four-person committee was established in
November for the purpose of putting the concept in motion.
But now that the initial decisions have been made, more people
are going to have to get involved. According to
'neighborhoodnewspapers.com', airport director Blake Swafford told
the airport authority that an air show is "a very, very, very large
event. It can't be done by four people."
Swafford said that he anticipates between 12,000 and 14,000
people will descend on the airport for the event, and that it will
take a combined effort of the airport authority, community leaders,
and volunteers to make it successful. The show is to be funded by
private donations and sponsorships, and will not come out of the
airport authority's revenue. Airport Authority Chairman Camvin
Thompson said that "all (funding) avenues will need to be
explored." A budget for the show is due in February.
Thompson said that the show would be "a huge highlight for this
community," which is about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta.
