What a waste of money to fly a handful of people to an airport when the drive to the Atlanta airport is less than 2 hours.
When you choose to live in podunk usa, expect to travel a bit by car to reach a real airport.
The EAS program is only for the local politicians to look like they are doing something useful for the community.
These EAS flights many times have 2 or 3 passengers per flight.Cut the cord and use the money for something that will be of real benefit.
