The Airport

In November 2007, MidCoast Regional Airport at Wright Army Airfield (LHW) opened its doors to the flying public. The airport, which is 45 minutes south of downtown Savannah and just minutes from Georgia's coast, is a recent addition to the exclusive list of joint-use airfields in the United States.

The airport, which is situated within Fort Stewart, was named "MidCoast" because of its position between the commercial airports at Savannah and Brunswick, as well as being midway between Charleston and Jacksonville. The airport is a cooperative effort between the City of Hinesville, the Liberty County Board of Commissioners, the Liberty County Development Authority, and the United States Army, acting under a Joint Management Board (JMB).
