The Welcome to Sanford Business of the Week is Raleigh Exec Jetport! Raleigh Exec takes advantage of Sanford’s Well Centered location to give corporate and recreational aircraft access to central North Carolina. Raleigh Exec is also designated as a reliever airport for RDU.
Last Fall, Raleigh Exec opened a new, 14,500 square foot terminal at their location off of Farrell Road. This expansion is aimed at making the jetport a more comfortable experience for the pilots who pass through. A report last year from the North Carolina Department of Transportation showed that Raleigh Exec Jetport created 470 jobs and over $61,000,000 of economic output for the region.
The Wings of Carolina Flying Club works with Raleigh Exec to provide low cost aviation education and cheap hourly rates for those looking to learn to fly for fun.
Raleigh Exec hosts other events as well, such as a free kids airplane ride from the EEA – The Spirit of Aviation chapter in Apex. The US Aircraft Expo will also be stopping at Raleigh Exec for a free, two-day showcase of the latest models of general aviation aircraft in June. If you are interested, you can register here.
