Daniel Field

Daniel Field is Augusta's secondary airport, primarily responsible for private plane traffic and located on Wrightsboro Road in Augusta.

The airport is owned and operated by the City of Augusta, and is managed by the General Aviation Commission. Renovations to the terminal completed in February 2012 included renovate the current aircraft hangar facility.

Before major renovations were completed in February of 2012, the last renovation was in the 1970s. Prior to renovation the building was not up to code for fire safety or security. The terminal now boasts an elevator and finished second floor, which is empty but available for office space. Construction included removing asbestos and curbs; replacing a spiral staircase with an elevator; putting new finishing on the floors; and adding a large, open room with two balconies for large crowds, events and a lounge area for pilots.

The terminal renovation was on the special purpose local option sales tax VI ballot and broke ground in January 2010. The project cost $1.7 million.
