Whitewater Aviation Corporation

The perfect landing for your "one-stop"
mountain adventure in Polk County, TN!


Hoping to get the runway lights project approved for increased use of the airport. We have pilots, instructor pilots and future businesses that need to use the airfield at night, especially during the fall and winter months of early sunsets and late sunrises. Flight training means night landings and hoping to draw in flight schools with students that will utilize the current motels, restaurants and tourism venues. With the new PAPI lights, landing on this field is even more precise.
Meeting with the Polk County board members that need to approve the project. Whitewater Aviation is ready to fund the local county share of the project which means no money out of the taxpayer's pockets! That would mean a win-win for Polk County.

About the President:

   Hans van Ovost
has over 30 years fixed base operation experience and is a seasoned Part 135 operator.
   He started at Fort Pierce, Florida municipal airport when it was just another non-towered airport without facilities.     
  Through Hans' efforts, it has become St. Lucie County International Airport (FPR) with paint, upholstery, avionics, and maintenance shops. 
   It is now a major business and transportation hub which has brought new businesses to the local area and increased the revenue of St. Lucie County.
   His hopes are to do the same for Polk County through it's only general aviation airport.

About the area:

   A two hour drive north of Atlanta lies the Tennessee Overhill Country.
This mystical, mysterious place is older than the Cherokee.
    Distinctively different, the moon shines over some of the United States best white water rivers, crystalline lakes, deeply wooded forests and some of the warmest, most colorful Americans still breathing.

   So, what's your pleasure? Whitewater rafting? Zip Line? Biking? Camping?  Hiking?  Fishing? Hunting?  Horse back riding? Train tours in the mountains?
