Gwinnett County Airport at Briscoe Field is a municipal airport located about two miles (3 km) northeast of Lawrenceville, Georgia, in the United States. It is owned and operated by the Gwinnett county, in the northeastern part of metro Atlanta.

It has a 6000 ft (1828.8 m) runway, and is 1061 ft (323.4 m) above mean sea level (AMSL). Student training is conducted at the airport by several different flight schools. Two FBOs, Landmark (north ramp) and Aircraft Specialists (south ramp), serve the field with facilities, passenger lounges, and fuel. ImagineAir, an air taxi company, is based at the airport and is currently the airport's largest air carrier by passenger volume. Airport Minimum Standards for Operation were rewritten in 2006.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Gwinnett County Airport is assigned LZU by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.
