Default KLHW. savannah Area

Looking for two hangarmates to share a hangar. My aircraft is an aerobatic MX2. (Close to an Rv8 footprint). Perfect hangar size for two other RV,s. With plenty room to spare. Might be able to fit a 4th. Month rent is $600 total...3 hangarmates total will be ideal. Building one? No problem...im an A&P as well.

LHW is a great and underutilized airport. Mitch is an easy and reliable hangar mate, house trained...etc.

Mitch has found new hangar mates, which would be me and my hangar mate from two hangars down from him.

This leaves our half of a 50x50 open for a new tenant. Current rate is 300/mo and easily fits 2 RVs.

Contact Charlie Martin, the FBO manager at KLHW for details if interested.

EDIT: Just spoke with Charlie and he said all hangar space has been claimed.

Default Hangar mates

Hey Ray. Shall we start advertising Pre Buys and Condition inspection services for all RV's?

For those flying in and out of LHW, how much trouble do the restricted areas (R-3005 A-E) and MOAs pose for day-to-day operations? I've been kind of assuming I'd have to base out of Ridgeland but LHW is the same distance away from my house... not that I'll be ready for a hangar for at least a couple more years, but still...

None. If you fly a normal person pattern you needn't even think of it.

Adds a few minutes if your destination is Northwest of the field, only minimally. The tower folks are really laid back, and Savannah Approach seems to enjoy working GA.

Also your AWOS warns you which areas and when the areas are hot or not. Savannah approach works w you well if they are active or you can squeeze above them or through a a narrow corridor on the west side of the SAV VOR.

last you can always do a beach run and enjoy the day without talking to anyone while avoinding the R areas...

Thanks for the info... I'm not worried about in the pattern; more about arrivals and departures. I'll probably be making lots of trips to and from the Atlanta area and that would make things a little more tricky.

I'm also completely out of practice in a controlled environment--I think the last time I spoke to any kind of ATC was during my solo cross-countries as a student 16 years ago.
