Metro Atlanta Airport Set to Host Air Show Again in 2013
The executive planning committee for the Salute America Air Show at Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport (KPUJ) has announced that it will host the second annual Salute America 2013 Air Show, a 501c3 “Benefit for Charity,” on October 5th-6th, 2013.
Following up on the strong interest surrounding the inaugural air show (which took place on October 20th, 2012) from the aviation community, aerial performers and the general public, the decision has been made to immediately commence efforts for planning the Salute America Air Show 2013. The family-friendly, “Benefit for Charity” is expected to draw aviation enthusiasts from around metro Atlanta and throughout the southeastern United States.
As the newest airport to be built in the state of Georgia in over thirty years, Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport’s (KPUJ) second annual air show will serve as an exciting aviation education and entertainment event for the Paulding community and region. The 2012 air show provided a greater degree of exposure and interest for Paulding County, which is one of the fastest growing counties in the state of Georgia.
According to air show Director, Brent Sparks, the event has already begun to receive sponsorship commitments for the 2013 show. “Following up on the incredible efforts put forth by so many during our first show, our team is prepared to make the 2013 air show an even higher quality event that will not only provide excitement and thrills for the general public in attendance, but one that will also continue to bring attention from the aviation industry qcsed to the Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport. As a charity event, our mission for 2013 is to showcase the Paulding Regional Airport to the aerospace business world and provide some much needed support to the residents of Paulding and surrounding West Georgia counties.”
Marketing for the event is already underway, and the event is expected to again have a significant economic impact on Paulding and other surrounding west Georgia counties. The air show’s planning committee includes several military and civilian pilots who possess extensive experience in planning and marketing both civilian and military air shows throughout the country.
The air show committee is actively seeking volunteers to fill a wide variety of support roles for next year’s event, including greeters and event guides. More information regarding the Salute America 2013 Air Show will be released in the coming weeks.
