Macon Downtown Airport and Jet Center
Macon Downtown Airport and Jet Center - a GHOST-TOWN!

Stay away unless you have a specific appointment. I flew in on a Saturday thinking it would be open, running and reliable. I was wrong.

Airport looked like it was on the verge of closing. Buildings collapsing, doors locked, no food, fuel, water, or anything. This was after checking online and doing all the flight planning to use this as a weather divert, so I did not actually call ahead, but DID use KMAC as a weather divert.

Good thing the weather blew over because there was no place to even go inside and sit to shelter. No tie-downs, nothing. It was like landing on a deserted island.

I would STAY AWAY from this airport or make an appointment for anything there. It is little more than an abandoned airstrip.

On the positive side, there is PLENTY OF PARKING and the runway was in good condition. I wish them the best of luck in their recovery as this could be a fantastic place to land.
