​For those driving, we are about 60 miles southwest of Columbia South Carolina, If you flying in on an airline, the best connections are into Columbia, but one  can also fly into Augusta, Ga. about 40 miles northwest from Barnwell. Both have rental cars. If you are flying your own plane to Barnwell, we have plenty of tie-downs.

​The airport supplies twelve 4' X 8' work tables, four engine assembly stands and cardboard to keep oil off the hangar floor. Please bring your own tools, rags, oil dri, ect. ​We have added additional fluorescent lights over the working area. There is a 55 gal waste oil drum in the hangar for disposal of waste oil and plenty of trash containers.
