Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) is a PRIVATE airpark. You must be a member or have permission of a member to use the runway and facilities. Photos and information on this website regarding length, obstacles, and other runway characteristics are for informational purposes only. You should do your own thorough research using approved FAA sectional charts and chart supplements before visiting our airpark. A personal weather station on site can be checked here.
SC45 is located 2 miles south of Gilbert, SC. The 3000' grass runway is 75' wide and in good condition. Field elevation is 551' MSL. Runway 09 is the favored calm wind landing runway, while runway 27 is favored for takeoff. Both runways have a LEFT traffic pattern. CTAF is 122.9 and runway lighting is 122.85. Announce intentions to "Gilbert Traffic" and begin announcing arrival 8-10 miles out. Pilots should stick to safety-essential information. CTAF is not for personal conversations - 122.9 is shared by many airports in the surrounding area. Brush up on non-towered airport operations by checking out Advisory Circular 90-66B.
Several cell towers are located near the airpark along I-20. The closest one is located on the north side of the final approach to Runway 27. Use extreme caution on downwind turning base for Runway 09 as the tallest local tower (1062' MSL) is approximately 2.5 miles NNW of the field. Please familiarize yourself with these obstacles on the Charlotte sectional and speak with a land/homeowner before attempting to fly in for the first time.
