Are you a fan of golf? Golden Isles Aviation (KSSI) is home to several PGA Tour pros who have added some personal memorabilia inside the FBO. While waiting to get back in the air, you can take a quick break on the putting green on the side of the FBO or enjoy complimentary membership perks at King and Prince Hotel’s Hampton Club Golf Course.

Unique Amenities at Golden Isles Aviation

Golden Isles Aviation – KSSI

As an Air Elite® by World Fuel member location, we want pilots to have an exceptional experience at Golden Isles Aviation on St. Simons/Sea Island, GA. The opportunity for pilots to play golf, swim in the pool, or work on their fitness are just a few of the amenities that are somewhat unique with our FBO.

Attached via a large porte-cochere, our FBO boasts an aviation-themed 88 room Home 2 Suites hotel with rooms overlooking the ramp and airport, a fitness center, and a pool. The commute from ‘work to bed’ is not a long one. You can walk from your plane directly to your overnight room in just a few steps. The Piper aircraft wing-shaped pool is surrounded by aviation-themed sculptures around the landscaped deck overlooking the FBO ramp, giving guests a unique and enjoyable aeronautical experience. Pilots can sit in the sun or the shade of an umbrella and relax by the pool or enjoy the fitness center and its equipment while spending time at the airport waiting for passengers to arrive. If only there for the day, we have a private bathroom with a tiled shower to help you recover, change, and get ready for the flight.

The Golden Isles is home to several PGA Tour pros who have been kind enough to add some personal memorabilia inside our FBO. To showcase golf culture in our community and provide activities for our guests, we added a lovely putting green for pilots to use. Located on the side of our FBO is the putting green next to the wrap-around front porch of our Terminal with rockers, tables, chairs, and ceiling fans where guests can relax and watch the traffic on the ramp and runway. Don’t worry about bringing your putter, as we have them and balls in the green already.

Lastly, transient pilots who come to Golden Isles Aviation can play a round of golf while here on our membership. We have the privilege of a gracious partnership with the King and Prince Hotel’s Hampton Club Golf Course, which treats our pilots like members and allows them to play 18 holes on this beautiful course for the expense of a golf cart fee. If you didn’t bring your clubs, we have a couple of sets to borrow. When here, ask the FBO to set it up, and we will be happy to get tee times for you.

Whether you are here for several days, overnight, or on a long day of wait, we are here with some unique amenities and would love to serve you. We take care of aircraft, crew, and passengers and all the expected and unexpected services of an Air Elite network location and Phillips 66® Aviation branded FBO. We look forward to seeing you on the Georgia coast!
