Searching for a Fly-In Community? Check out the Upstate’s Offerings!

There are waterfront communities. There are golf course communities. There are HOA planned communities. But you may not be aware of fly-in communities. And the South Carolina Upstate is home to two of these premier aviation neighborhoods. 

Williamsport Located in Easley and Pickens County, Williamsport Executive Airport is one of the Upstate’s leading fly-in communities, complete with a 2500-foot runway featuring breathtaking views of Table Rock State Park off in the distance. Only 15 minutes from downtown Greenville, living at Williamsport also gives you easy access to I-85, I-385, Hwy 123 and Hwy 153 when the need to drive rather than fly arises. Williamsport is also within easy distance to Lake Keowee and Clemson University.

An exclusive community where membership is required in order to use the airstrip, Williamsport has well defined covenants and restrictions concerning residential square footage, building materials and home maintenance. And while there is construction restrictions each home brings its own unique personality to the community. Large lots with plenty of mature oaks provide plenty of space for your own private hanger if you so desire. 

Chandelle Situated along Hwy 101 between Woodruff and Greer in Spartanburg County is Chandelle Aviation Estates. Chandelle, which is pilot speak for a climbing 180 degree turn, while an easy drive to Spartanburg, is still located less than 10 miles from downtown Greenville. The dream for Chandelle began in the mid-1990’s when Ray Clark flew over the 90 acre property and visually laid out the blueprint for 65 homesites and a 3,700-foot asphalt paved runway along with a grass runway beside it. The subdivision streets are designed like a spoked wheel with the majority of the homes backing up to runaway. The level runway is complete with pilot controlled lighting, a great radar environment, along with easy to follow via radio or cell phone flight plans. 

All Chandelle residences are custom built and square footage requirements begin at 2,500 square feet. These exquisite estate designed homes are constructed following established architectural standards, ensuring Chandelle has both the look and feel of a planned community. Each property includes a separate plane driveway leading to the runway and a single or double private hanger.There are two large ponds directly across the street from the community making it an easy stroll to feed the ducks or enjoy an evening cocktail while watching the sun set over the water.
