About Silver Comet Field
Completed in 2008, Silver Comet Field, located in Metro Atlanta, is one of only a handful of new airports built in the United States over the past two decades. The primary motivation for its construction was economic development, vis-à-vis leveraging the substantial aerospace talent in the region, and offering a high-quality platform to attract aerospace firms.
The county is committed to having one of the most business-friendly environments in the United States, as well as being the nation's most aggressive in order to create a solid foundation for future generations. As such, county leadership has taken a unique approach to developing Silver Comet. While local governments and public authorities administer almost all U.S. airports, a private company operates Silver Comet with commercial principles.
In 2012 the Paulding County Airport Authority (PCAA) entered into a long-term agreement with Silver Comet Terminal Partners, a subsidiary of Propeller Airports LLC.
