DeKalb – Peachtree Airport (KPDK), is Georgia’s busiest general aviation airport and is by far the best location to learn how to fly. A mix of corporate jets, helicopters and private aircraft traffic provides an ideal atmosphere for developing the skills and self – confidence you will want to attain to fly to any destination you desire. Most of the popular locations to fly to for business or pleasure have very active airports.
