The runway expansion project at Cherokee County Airport (CNI, formerly known as 47A) in Canton, Ga., was completed last month. The airport’s 3,414-foot main runway has been extended to 5,002 feet, which will allow most general aviation aircraft to land and take off from the airport. In addition, a full-length taxiway is almost complete. The airport has Rnav (GPS) with Waas approach to 250 feet. S&S Aviation, which is currently constructing a 12,000-sq-ft hangar to accommodate the additional aircraft based at CNI, provides maintenance and full-service and self-service avgas and jet fuel.

The airport plans to purchase land to accommodate the construction of seven more hangars, including a new maintenance hangar next to the existing 10,000-sq-ft terminal building and 16,800-sq-ft hangar. CNI is located 30 miles northwest of Atlanta, in one of the fastest growing counties in Georgia.
