SCAA Supports Adding “Aviation Activities” to SC Recreational Use Statute

SCAA supports the passage of H.4673 which adds “aviation activities” into the SC Recreational Use statute.  Kathy Hegenberger has led the charge in having this added into law. Hegenberger who is also a apart of the Recreational Aviation Foundation has watched other states embrace this legislation.  “This is just one more step to South Carolina being an aviation friendly state.,” said Hegenberger. Practically, the law would limit the liability of property owners for aviation activities occurring on their property. SCAA President Don Purcell and Treasurer Merrill Donahoo attended the Special Laws Subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, March 27 to show the association’s support of adding this language.

The association will continue to support this legislation and appreciates Kathy Hegenberger for her efforts to move this...

SCAA Paints Aviation Mural at Zucker Middle School in Charleston

Despite the ice and a day delay the South Carolina Aviation Association followed through with its Community Service Project at the Jerry Zucker Middle School of Science in North Charleston February 12-14. Sponsored by ADC Engineering, association members painted a mural that depicts aviation scenes and state residents inducted into the South Carolina Aviation Hall of Fame. Among them: NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, Ernest Henderson, the first African American in South Carolina to receive his commercial pilot’s license; and Sally Crouch, one of the World War II “Doolittle Raiders.” With the theme “I Can Do That,” the mural also will feature aviation scenes such as general aviation plane and pilot, air traffic control tower, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, aviation mechanic, astronaut, emergency helicopter, FedEx freight airplane and military plane. SCAA hopes to connect children to aviation through art by painting an aviation-inspired mural at the school, said Bill New, deputy director of airports at the Charleston County Aviation Authority and past president of the South Carolina Aviation Association. “The idea behind this project is to promote aviation in South Carolina by encouraging kids to think about aviation and aeronautics as a future career,” New...
