Hello all.

 

I'm new to homebuilding.  I've built RC for a while, but am breaking into real construction.  Are there any builders in the Greenville, SC area?

Hi Adam -

Sorry to see that your question got kind of buried here - we'll put out the call in our email newsletter tomorrow to see if we can do a better job getting you connected with some local builders.

In the meantime, you should get in touch with the local EAA Chapter, 249, based at the Greenville Downtown airport:

Best regards, and keep us posted on your progress!

Adam,

 

We fly in & out of KGMU (Greenville Downtown) fairly regularily, and from what I've seen, there is quite an active GA community on the field.  Have you tried going and looking around there?

 

Good luck!

Below is announcement of our next meeting of EAA 249 chapter in Greenville, SC

 

First of all, just a reminder, the next EAA Chapter 249 meeting is this coming Monday night, November 1st at 7:30 at the BJU Hangar at GMU.  If you need directions or the gate code, give me a call at 864.525.8938.     The program will be "high lights" from the recent B-17 Tour Stop and updates from you on the status of your project and aviation interests.

 

Note phone number to call for gate access code.  BJU hangar is on south end and on the Haywood Mall side.
