Richard B. Russell Regional Airport is located 11 km north of the central business district of Rome, Georgia. The Rome Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol is located at the airport. The county turned the land over to the U.S. Navy which built three asphalt runways for a Naval Auxiliary Air Station. It was deeded back to the county in 1945, after the Navy discontinued its use of the site. The airport was then named for Richard B. Russell, Jr., who represented Georgia in the U.S. Senate from 1933 until his death in 1971.
