MidCoast Regional Airport at Wright Army Airfield is a joint public and military use airport at Fort Stewart, a United States Army post located near the city of Hinesville in Liberty County, Georgia, United States. The airport's physical address is 1116 E. Lowe Circle, Fort Stewart, GA 31314 and its mailing address is P.O. Box 10, Hinesville, GA 31310.

Wright Army Airfield became a joint-use facility in November 2007. The name MidCoast refers to its location on the Georgia coast between Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and Brunswick Golden Isles Airport. The airport is managed by a Joint Management Board (JMB) consisting of the City of Hinesville, Liberty County (Board of Commissioners & Development Authority) and the U.S. Army. The JMB contracted with ABS Aviation Management Services to manage and operate the new facilities and the fixed base operator (FBO) for civilian operations.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned LHW by the FAA and LIY by the IATA (which assigned LHW to Lanzhou, Gansu, China).
