Flying in to Greenville for business? Plan to land at GMU which is the "Corporate Gateway to Greenville." Over the years, the Greenville Airport Commission - owner and operator of the Greenville Downtown Airport - has invested heavily to ensure that the airport remains a safe, efficient, and modern facility. The FAA Southern Region recently selected GMU to receive its prestigious General Aviation Airport Safety Award. The award is presented to a general aviation airport in the Southeast that makes outstanding efforts to increase flight safety. GMU accomplished this by completing numerous safety-enhancing projects. Of particular note, GMU was the first general aviation airport in the nation to install an Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) in the latter part of 2003. EMAS rapidly and safely decelerates aircraft that have overrun the active runway by utilizing energy absorbing material. In the summer of 2007, this system was credited with saving five passengers and a $20 million Falcon 900 jet that overran Runway 1 due to a brake malfunction.
