Default Work trip to KHXD



Work trip to Hilton Head to attend a class all week. Decided to use the RV to get here! 1:38 flight time vs 6hr drive! No brainer!

Line guy was awesome and delivered the rental plane side. Impressed the wife who gets to lounge by the pool and the beach all week while I sit in class!

Don't want to even think about how much fuel cost here!

Love getting to use the plane for trips!

Nice! Bully's BBQ has great ribs! Or Truffles for dinner is always nice.

Yes, the line people and CSR's are great at HXD, but the gas is expensive.

You are so close to home you shiuld only have to buy the minumim 10 gallons.

Let me know about the ramp fee. I hear it is just as great as the fuel price.

Brian,
Glad to see you back to normal flying again.
Great use of the RV.
Still love your choice of colors on the plane.

Airnav reports:
avgas $7.15 ($0.50 discount on weekends)
ramp fee $40 (waived with fuel purchase)
facility fee $5.
parking $8/night

Not too bad for a resort area, as long as you don't need too much gas.

You can swing into KAQX or KJYL for much less expensive AVGAS, as well as 3J1 (not as cheap), where several RVs are built and based.
