The widening and repaving project at Cobb County-McCollum Airport in Kennesaw, Ga., was completed early last month, and the runway is now 6,305 feet long and 100 feet wide. The shoulders and infield sections of the airport were also graded and additional drainage installed. For Atlanta-based flight departments and Atlanta-bound traffic, the Preferred Jet Center FBO at Cobb County offers an attractive alternative to closer-in Atlanta airports. Facilities include 80,000 sq ft of hangar space (40,000 heated), 20,000 sq ft of office space available for lease and a full-service FBO with concierge services, business center, wireless Internet, satellite television, free gourmet coffee, complimentary valet services for customer vehicles and new crew cars.
