Piney Creek

About Us

If flying is your passion and you love a serene countryside, safe community, and friendly, welcoming neighbors, you've come to the right place. Piney Creek Air Park developers, Joe Greenwell, a retired deputy sheriff, and his brother Jeff Greenwell, a businessman from Texas, both share a life-long passion for flying.

During their visits to countless communities throughout Florida, North Carolina, Georgia and Eastern Tennessee, they found the Cumberland Plateau to be one of the most beautiful and conducive to the development of an affordable residential airpark community. They found the area around Altamont to be an ideal location offering the amenities of a small town together with the conveniences of larger cities less than an hour away. Chattanooga is 55 miles to the south and Nashville 80 miles to the north. In between is some of the most beautiful country in the United States.


The key feature of the airpark is a 3,000 foot long by 50 foot wide paved private runway centered in a 4,000 foot long by 200 foot wide clearing. The runway was completed in the summer of 2008. Phase III of the development will include hangar facilities at the west end of the runway.

Home Sites

Development plans include natural wooded home sites ranging in size from 2+ to 6+ acres. These beautiful, oversized home sites surround the runway, with direct and indirect access to the airstrip.

Homes within the community will be constructed of natural elements, wood logs and stone, and will blend harmoniously with the incredible beauty of the Cumberland Plateau.
