Does Pacafic Wings airlines ever land at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport? I am trying to fly from Owensboro, KY
to Gainesville, GA on Nov. 17, 2010. Pacafic Wings offers a flight to Atlanta, so I am wondering if they
can also land at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport.

Can you direct me to a directory or where I may purchase a low cost flight simulator I could mount inside a trailer.

If this is possible what do you think the price range would be.

Thank you
Hugh

Does Lee Gilmer Memrial Airport have a courtsey car available at the airport. My husband and I would like to fly in for a family wedding reception and we were wondering if one is available.
