9th Annual Take Flight 5K

The 9th Annual Take Flight 5K was the biggest one ever.

Who doesn't want to run in the best and flattest race in the Upstate at the busiest general aviation airport in South Carolina? All net proceeds go to Runway Park. We raised enough to build an additional picnic hangar and create more shade. 

The race started by honoring our fallen heroes with a Memorial Day Ceremony conducted by the Civil Air Patrol. Hot 98.1 FM was there with Dex and UberQueen. Such a great event! Look for it about the same time next year!

Foreign Object Debris..

 

FOD is a problem on any airport runway. It causes damage to engines and planes. It can also injure runway workers when jets take off. It is a constant battle.

Our annual FOD walk that is open to the public during Aviation Week and happens mid-August.

It is a good day to network and help clean up the runway. We will expand this event in the future for businesses.
