General Aviation Facility
Gastonia Municipal serves a growing number of corporate aircraft that are powerful and quiet enough to utilize our convenient and economical facility. Private aircraft owners occupy more than 30 hangars with easy access to our runway and value the full parallel taxiway and brief wait times. Area emergency medical services and law enforcement agencies utilize Gastonia as a heliport and transport point. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is located just 10 miles east offering scheduled commercial service to Gastonia and Gaston County residents.
