The Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge Airport is a general aviation airport located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Located on almost 200 acres, the airport currently has 50 hangars and is home to over 100 aircraft, the Tennessee Hall of Fame, and the Tennessee Museum of Aviation.
Originally owned by Sevier County, the original runway at the Sevier-Gatlinburg Airport was built in 1966 and a terminal added in 1970.
In 1981, when the county voted to close the airport, the cities of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge entered an agreement to operate and maintain the airport. So in February of 1982, upon leasing the land from Sevier County, the airport became known as Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge Airport. At that time, there were 3 hangars, 15 airplanes and a 4,500 foot runway.
Since then approximately 80 acres have been added to the airport property. There have also been several other projects funded by the federal, state, and local governments. Some of these improvement projects include extending the runway to 5,506 feet, a taxiway extension, hill removals, taxiway lighting, fencing, and additional apron and hangar areas
In September of 2009, the airport opened a brand new, 8,000 square foot terminal building with a new 6 acre concrete apron and currently has 50 hangars and is home to over 100 aircraft.
