EAA 172 MEMBERS'
PRIVATE AIRSTRIPS

The Experimental Aircraft Association, CSRA EAA 172, Augusta, Georgia, has several members and associates who have their own private airstrips or regularly use private airstrips. In most cases the airstrips have FAA issued identifiers. In some cases it's just a pasture used occasionally as an airstrip on the owner's property. Regarding those airstrips with FAA issued identifiers, the FAA information legally is in the public domain (in other words, not private, copyrighted, or secret!). That public information is what is in the listings below that have identifiers.

NOTE: In ALL cases you must contact the airstrip owners before landing on their airstrips. In many cases the airstrip is also a pasture. There may be cattle or horses that usually use the land. You, and the airstrip owner,  would definitely be distressed and angered if you killed a prize thoroughbred horse worth a quarter million dollars. You, because you might wreck your plane or be seriously injured or possibly killed. They, because they lost a prize horse (though most likely they would also be upset about your injury or death!).  Note that your liability insurance may not cover the damages you inflict and so you would be personally responsible for the rest of the damages. You may also have a criminal charge of trespass to handle.

So, call ahead!
