Falcon Field Airport is developing a special place to honor our active military, veterans, and their families of all Services who have served and sacrificed for our country.

The Falcon Field Veterans Memorial will be located prominently at the entrance to Falcon Field Airport and will be highlighted by a mounted Air Force F-16 "Fighting Falcon" jet fighter. The Veterans Memorial area will be nicely landscaped, include night lighting, and feature a Military Walk of Honor and a brick paver recognition area dedicated to permanently recognizing those that have contributed to preserving our freedom.

The dedication of the Falcon Field Veterans Memorial is the opening milestone event of the renaissance of Falcon Field as the aviation gateway to Peachtree City and Fayette County. Falcon Field has many new and exciting developments underway that will firmly establish the airport as the premiere regional airport serving the southern metropolitan Atlanta area.

Freedom is not Free !
Thank those who have served and sacrificed.

Georgia Dream Pass Program

Peachtree City is the newest participant in the Georgia Dream Pass program

The Peachtree City Tourism Association (PCTA) is the newest participant in The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Dream Pass Program. The Georgia Dream Pass is a free consumer “membership rewards” affinity program that gives members access to special offers and benefits that are exclusive to cardholders and these benefits are now available at the Peachtree City Visitor’s Center.

The PCTA is working closely with local hotels to offer a number of incentives for Dream Pass members to visit Peachtree City. These incentives include a hand painted Peachtree City ornament, a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Outback Steakhouse with a qualifying stay at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, and a Complimentary Breakfast with a qualifying stay at Dolce Atlanta-Peachtree as well as 10% discount at their Lakeview Dining Restaurant.

“The goal of the program is to increase the number of visitors to Georgia, while encouraging residents to discover what is in their own backyard,” said GDEcD's Deputy Commissioner for Tourism and Marketing, Charlie Gatlin. “We are the first state to develop a membership rewards program of this scope that will in turn provide us measurable results.”

The program has already seen success beginning with the launch of its first phase, “Georgia is Big on Golf,” in March 2007. The wallet-sized card is currently offering rewards and incentives at more than 35 participating golf courses and resorts, including Cuscowilla, Barnsley Gardens and Callaway Gardens, to name just a few. To date, more than 5,000 members are taking advantage of rewards that include special member rates on green fees, discounted rates at resorts, restaurants and attractions as well as many other exceptional offers.
