Andalusia airport gives lift to Southeast Alabama aerospace hub

ANDALUSIA, Alabama — Covington County’s South Alabama Regional Airport has become a busy hub for aviators traveling throughout the Southeastern U.S.

The airport has a heliport that provides hot and cold refueling services to civilian and military helicopters, as well as an airfield café that brings in hundreds of pilots daily.

In addition, the airport’s industrial park is home to several maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities, and there’s also a satellite campus of the Alabama Aviation College.

“Our vision for South Alabama Regional Airport is to be the gateway for Covington County, along with being the best on the ground for the best in the air,” said Jed Blackwell, the airport’s executive director.
