Toccoa- Stephens County Airport
The Toccoa-Stephens County Airport features a 5,000 foot runway and state of the art lighting system. Located on 169 acres near downtown Toccoa, the facility is managed by the Toccoa-Stephens County Airport Authority.
Three of the five authority members are appointed on a rotating basis by the county commissioners and Toccoa City Council and the other two postitions are held by the chairman of the Stephens County Board of Commissioners and the mayor of Toccoa,
Local businessman and aviation buff R.G. LeTourneau created the airport in the late 1950s when he built two runways for his personal use. LeTourneau donated the runways to the city and county in 1961 and the the airfield was named in his honor.
In addition to lengthening and repaving the runway and taxiways to allow small jets to land at R.G. LeTourneau Field, the TSCAA added an AWOS 3P weather reporting system that is crucial for instrument approaches to the airport. New corporate hangars and T-hangars are also being added to the complex.
A 6,000 square-foot terminal and TSCAA office were built at the airport funded by SPLOST V funds and grants.
