News and Information
Lewis county relies on life flights emergency air lift services. Without a hospital and critical care facility, helicopters like the one pictured above, can be seen over Hohenwald several times a week and illustrate how vital their services are to our community.
Aviation Serves America
Everyone benefits from aviation either directly or indirectly from a multitude of services and uses.
Aerial Sprayers improve yields for crops and timber growers helping to keep food prices low and protect trees grown for the logging industry.
Airlines and Corporate flying keep businesses competitive, protect jobs and allow millions of travelers each year the freedom to fly and turns days of road travel into just a few hours in the air.
Overnight Shipping flights deliver life-saving medicines, vital documents, machine parts and products to anywhere in the world. Our economy and countless lives rely on the efficiency and speed of our world-wide air delivery system.
Military Aviation protects our interest and those of our allies world-wide. Our service members are on the job 24/7 defending our liberty and ensuring our economy continues to thrive.
Local Airports are a valuable asset to small communities. Having an airport makes a geographically isolated city like ours more accessible and more competitive with cities that do not have an airport. Our close airport puts Hohenwald minutes away from vital care facilities and reduce half-a-day drives for business persons to less than an hour flight. ______________________
