It is probably fair to say that the new Blue Ridge Skyport has been somewhat of a secret, even to some local residents in Fannin county. This new airplane development is located near Sugar Creek in Blue Ridge. What was once a strip used for drag racing up until the late 1960s is now a pristine, private mountain community with a 3100' landing strip.
Jim Clack, the developer purchased the dragstrip in 1999 and began developing it into a residential community in 2002. Mr. Clack graduated from Southern Tech and served in the Korean War. He has always had a passion for aviation and has now developed the only air strip in Fannin county.
Blue Ridge Skyport is now offering 40 homesites, 16 of which have access to the runway and a private hanger. There are 18 hangers for homesites that do not have space for a private hanger. Of the 40 homesites, 17 have already sold. Surrounded by mountains, creek, spring fed pond, nature trails and native plants and trees, we believe this community has the potential to increase tourism and attract businesses to Fannin county.
Prices range from $39,000 up to $249,500 and lots range from 1.5 acres to 2.71 acres. Lots 3, 6-21, 23, 25-26, 29, 35-37, 40 are available.
