Airport Road is to the south of this image, and there are signs directing you to the airport entrance. From Clow, drive south on Weber Road and turn left (East) on Renwick Road. After about a mile turn left (North) on George J Michas Dr, at the large orange windsock.  Follow that as it turns to the east, and we're in Hangar 3 across the street from the main terminal.

The green line depicts driving in from the airport entrance on Airport Road. The red line depicts the taxi route to and from the taxiway adjacent to runway 9/27. Note that the self-service fuel pumps should be on your right as you depart the runway.
