9th Annual Take Flight 5K
The Take Flight 5K held Saturday, May 28, 2022, 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 This year we are putting in more shaded areas for families.
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!
Free static air show and fun at the Greenville Downtown Airport Nov 13th and 14th.
Warbird Adventures vintage aircraft flight school gave the opportunity to see World War II aircraft up close and offered flights around Greenville. The P40 Warhawk American Dream and the T-6 Texan planes were on display. The PBY Catalina flying boat is scheduled to rides as well. Historic military vehicles and a flea market from the MHCC Museum, a quick class about aviation from the Civil Air Patrol, and other hands on events from various vendors were all on display!
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.
We have an annual FOD walk that is open to the public during Aviation Week in August.
The last walk was on Saturday, August 21, 2021. It is a good day to network and help clean up the runway. See our Facebook site for more details on the next walk!
