Good Afternoon Everyone,
As promised here are close-ups of the Augusta Regional Airport, which was introduced last week!
The first picture shows the approach arriving aircraft take when they land at the sole runway at AGS.
Luckily, there is plenty of room around the airport for expansion when further growth in the metro area warrants another runway.
Here is the parking pad for business jets and privately owned aircraft. This is where pilots can store their planes when they arrive for the Masters Tournament in April. It is located just south of the terminal.
Here is an overview of the terminal at AGS; where the ATCT is south of the terminal, and airport parking is across the airport road. Parking is only $5 a day for short-term, and $6 for long-term parking, pretty cool huh? Also, you will find rental cars and the Augusta Metropolitian Transportation (AMT) buses for travel into the city.
This is a close-up of the terminal, where you can clearly see the liveries of the airlines servicing AGS!
Last, but not least, is the freeway interchange just north-east of the airport. Heading north will take you to downtown Augusta. East will take you over the Savannah River into Aiken County, SC. West will take you towards Evans and Martinez, GA; suburbs of Augusta. South will take you towards Waynesboro, GA and eventually Savannah. South of this interchange (the Downtown Expressway (GA-429)) loses it's status as a closed-access divided highway and becomes a surface highway, where the speed limit drops from 65 mph to 55 mph. The speedlimit on the beltway (the east-west freeway) is 65 mph throughout its entire length from the western terminus at I-20 in Martinez and its eastern terminus northeast of North Augusta, SC.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to the Augusta Regional Airport! Enjoy your flight!
