Located just 15 hassle-free minutes from Raleigh’s Outer Beltline and designated as a reliever airport for Raleigh-Durham International (RDU), Raleigh Exec is home to a vibrant aviation community centered around corporate aircraft, aviation-related businesses, recreational planes, and one of the nation’s oldest and most respected flying clubs.
Raleigh Exec operates on 700 acres just off U.S. 1 at Exit 76 (Farrell Road), only 15 miles from the Triangle Parkway I-540, providing easy access to Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and the Research Triangle Park. Chapel Hill is not far away via U.S. 15-501 and many of the area’s major manufacturing sites in Sanford are just minutes from a brand-new terminal that features pilot amenities, corporate meeting space, and an observation deck.
Among the airport’s full services are Jet A and 100LL aircraft fuel, complete aircraft maintenance, avionics repair, pilot weather services, flight schools, secure hangars with limited-access gates, car service, courtesy and rental automobiles, and catering.
The quasi-governmental organization responsible for operating the jetport, registered under a former airport name as the Sanford-Lee County Regional Airport Authority, meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 8 a.m. in the terminal building conference room, except in November and December, when meetings are held on the third Thursday.
