ATLANTA — Hill Aircraft recently celebrated its 60th anniversary with a block party. Serving Fulton County Airport (KFTY), the FBO was originally founded in 1955 by Guy Hill, Sr., a decorated Navy pilot, aircraft mechanic and politician.
Festivities included a static display, strolling magician, tastings from Atlanta’s finest food trucks complete with park benches and vintage street lamps, dancing to music of the 1950s and 1960s, a photo booth, and a giant screen with scrolling pictures from the past 60 years.
Guests flew in from across the country to help the Hill family celebrate the anniversary. Ten years ago Hill Aircraft celebrated the man who started it all, the company and its history. The 60th anniversary party focused not only that legacy, but also the future.
“My father was dedicated to the aviation industry, and we plan on continuing that dedication far into the future,” said Guy Hill, Jr.
