FLYING, the largest media brand dedicated to general aviation, is planning to develop a fly-in outdoor adventure resort and residential community on 1,500 acres directly in between Dunlap and Pikeville, TN, in the Sequatchie Valley. This is highly differentiated real-estate for a fanatical audience, marketed under the leading media brand for pilots. The property is in the Opportunity Zone and great for investors in Fall Creek, but also for resident entrepreneurs.
The Fields is located in a Class G airspace and will be the only paved airport within 30 miles – this eliminates the hassles of dealing with air traffic control or congestion. In addition, the Sequatchie Valley offers some of the most majestic flying in the entire eastern half of the U.S. in one of the most vibrant and active outdoor communities in the world, which Outside Magazine recognized as the “Best Town Ever.”
At maturity, the community will host at least 800 residential homes, many with hangars attached, 180 vacation villa rental homes, 35 hangars, and an outdoor adventure resort center.
The community will initially feature a 4,200 ft runway with plans to extend.
Hangar homes will feature attached hangars ranging from 1,500 to 4,000 sq. ft. with driveways connected to the airpark's runway.
Homes at The Fields will be high end across the board with luxury features throughout. They will also have the option to include attached hangars.
Our world-wide aviation media center will be used by FLYING Media to develop interactive aviation themed media.
The community will host a winery in addition to world-class dining.
Recreational opportunities will include an equestrian, skeet shooting, hunting, mountain biking, and more.
Developed by the largest aviation media brand, FLYING, the goal is to build an aviation-friendly community and resort that blends remote work, nature, and the love of aviation.
This 1,500 acre development project will include large and small hangar homes, luxury estates, a resort, an activity center, restaurants, and a spa. All community owned development and resort buildings will have a modern farm-style architecture, building on the legacy of the property as a working family farm. Of the 1,500 acres, we believe we can develop 1,200 acres for residential, commercial and hospitality:
The remaining 300 acres would be turned into a conservation easement and reserved for outdoor community activities such as off-road and mountain biking, ropes courses, skeet shooting, hiking, rock climbing, hang gliding, hunting, and fishing.
There is also 4,900 ft. of frontage off of State Highway 127, perfect for commercial development (the highway is scheduled for expansion in 2022).
With land plentiful around the development, the community will expand throughout the valley and the top of the Cumberland Plateau.
Aviation real estate is hard to come by, and municipalities don’t allow people to own hangar space at airports. Targeted to pilots, fly-in communities are self-contained airparks with runways and homes with their own hangar space.
The Fields is located in an unincorporated rural area of East Tennessee that does not have zoning laws. Since The Fields is located in Class G uncontrolled airspace, there are no airspace restrictions in the area. The airfield will be a private airfield which eliminates the need to get municipal, state, or federal officials to approve the airfield.
The local utility providers have all agreed to support the project, including power, water, and fiber providers. Sewage will run on a drip system, which works like a small sewage plant for the community. We will contract out garbage, local services, and fire response. Residents will have access to high speed fiber through a local co-operative for gig internet. There is a 24/7/365 emergency hospital run by the nation’s 7th largest public-owned hospital system that is approximately ten miles to the south.
Sequatchie Valley, TN is a nearly perfect straight valley in eastern Tennessee that draws people from all over the country for outdoor adventure tourism. The rural area is home to some of the most breathtaking views in all of Tennessee, with mountains, fields of green, and large forests.
