Question Hangar Space at ARW Beaufort County Airport?

I am moving to Beaufort,SC this summer and I am looking for a hangar. The airport has quite a long wait list so I am wondering if any RVrs have a hangar there and are looking for a hangar mate.

Chad, a friend of mine, Tim Verroi, has the car rental business in the terminal and just sold his RV-8, so his hangar is now unoccupied. Sensible Car rental is his business name, and he also has a storage building business across the street from the airport, where we keep our boats.

I fly a -10 to our house down there pretty often, so hope to meet up with you soon.

Best,

Still looking for any leads on hangar space at Beaufort County (just missed out on Tim's hangar). I've got a lead on hangar space at Ridgeland (thanks Jim!), but that airport is 45 min to an hour from where we will live.

Default Another Feeler

Just putting another feeler out for Beaufort County Airport hangars. If you know anyone looking to get someone in their hangar shoot me a PM. The 50 minute drive to Ridgeland is cutting down on my flying time!

Maybe so, but hangars are available (you can actually own your own hangar in Ridgeland, unlike at Beaufort) and rentals will be lower. And you can work on your own airplane there (also unlike Beaufort). Everyone does as there are several builders there and a number of RV's, several A&P's, a couple of IA's, a glider club, etc. New 4,200' runway is apparently now formally scheduled to start "soon" (politics, you know?).

Chad, we should be there by 10:00 a.m. this morning (it's foggy here) so I may just file IFR.

We'll be in my -10, N777SW, yellow and silver, named "Rapid Transit." and overnighting.

Best,
