Tom B. David Field (ICAO: KCZL, FAA LID: CZL) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) south of the central business district of Calhoun, a city in Gordon County, Georgia, United States. It is owned by the Calhoun-Gordon County Airport Authority.[1] This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned CZL by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned CZL to Ain el Bey Airport in Constantine, Algeria).[4]
