     Don Bledsoe owns and flies the Cessna 152 shown in the first two photos above. He is in the process of finishing the Cessna 172 shown in the photo at right above. He is also working on a homebuilt helicopter (not shown). He owns a trucking business.

     Don owns the airport previously known as "Lexington County Airport at Gaston" (2SC8) on aeronautical charts located between Gaston and Swansea, SC just off Highway #321. It is now a PRIVATE airport. As owner and airport manager, he also serves as a director on our Board of Directors. Don has renamed his airport "Gaston Airport" in order to avoid any confusion with Lexington County Airport at Pelion (6J0). For years, this airport was neglected and rundown, but against all odds, Don has transformed the airport into a very nice, modern and desirable facility. Don continues to make improvements at the airport. He most recently added runway lights and PAPI (similar to VASI) system. He loves aviation and is a willing host for our chapter activities. Thanks Don, for allowing us to call your airport our chapter home and for your hospitality!
