Lee, you are absolutely correct. I love the atmosphere at Ridgeland, but work doesn't leave a lot of time for flying so for now I would rather spend the extra 40 min flying instead of driving to the airport when I get the chance!

Do you know of any hangars for sale or rent in Ridgeland SC? I'm looking to either build an RV-9 or buy and hangar an RV-4 there. Can I build a hangar there? Anybody with info please let me know. I'm moving to the area soon. I have not been able to contact the airport directly.

Just drop by Ridgeland just about any nice Saturday morning and ask around. The airport manager, Mr. Dean also keeps an eye on what's available. All hangars at Ridgeland are privately owned at the moment. There will be county owned hangars there in 2-3 years when the new runway/terminal, etc is finished. Hangars are bought and sold there all the time. Check with Dennis Argetsinger (for example); he just bought a nearly 4,000 sq. ft. hangar and is busy painting the floors and cleaning it up. Don't know if he's into leasing space or not, but you can certainly check with him. If he's not, he'll know who is.
