Went to college for 3 years in ATL, hated the school but loved the town. I'm currently in the military and thinking about looking for airline employment with ATL domiciled airlines (Delta and Airtran) in a couple of years.

Just wondering where do y'all live in ATL if you work at the airport? This question particularly for the pilots out there. What cities are most common and what kind of house prices am I looking at? Right now I live in Louisiana and I can get a ton of house for little money, but I rather be based in ATL and not commute to the job. Thanks

Alot of Pilots live in Peachtree City, alot of flight attendants live close to the airport or within Marta distance (Marta train goes straight into the Airport) because of the employee parking associated with the airlines is located on-site to the airport (DELTA) and within a 5 minute shuttle ride (Airtran) I think it would be good to live close to the airport. There are some nice apartments on Camp Creek Pkwy onsite at the Camp Creek Marketplace or you can try Hapeville which has some nice condos/homes.

Most pilots do live in Peachtree City or Fayetteville; most of them make their homes somewhere in Fayette County.
Now price wise? What is the price range you are looking for and I will be able to tell you if Fayette County is right for you. I live in a very small area of Fayetteville that is actually Clayton County. And PLEASE don't believe all this GARBAGE that some of these people are saying about Clayton County that have never even stepped FOOT near it.

A lot of airline industry professionals are in Sharpsburg (Coweta County -- Cannongate area) and Peachtree City (Fayette County). We're with the aviation industry and I cannot begin to count the number of Delta employees (exec. management) in Sharpsburg.

Thanks for the info. Looks like Peachtree City is the place to be, home prices seem to have at least a 50-100K markup for the same level homes in the adjacent towns, and from the online listings there's really nothing in the 200-250K that's new looking homes. I still rather not have a commute to ATL for the airline gig, but I'll reconsider the opportunity costs of a move there when I get to that bridge. Thanks again for the info!

Actually, there are quite a few new home developments in the 200-250K price range in adjacent Senoia and Newnan.

very true. Newnan is less expensive and very close to the airport. Plus there's alot of retail there and the schools are good.
