Runway Safety

Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU)

Hazards and Hot Spots

Greenville Downtown Airport (GMU) is a medium sized general aviation airport located on the eastern edge of the city of Greenville, South Carolina. It primarily serves the general and business aviation community, in addition to air taxi traffic and a local Medivac network that utilizes the field. The airport is just six miles southwest of the larger Greenville-Spartanburg International (GSP) and five miles north of the Donaldson (GYH) airports. Pilots have confused these airports primarily when operations are in a north configuration. The close proximity of these airports warrants particular attention to traffic pattern entries issued by the tower. The airport configuration consists of two intersecting runways, and a complex taxiway system provides access to all businesses on the field, including the FBO and all ramp areas, located on each corner of the airport. This configuration leads to an unusually high number of vehicular crossings on airport surfaces including slower aircraft under tow and golf carts. This video prepares pilots for hot spots and common issues at GMU.
