“It was great to see first hand how this new hangar will contribute to the economic development of Person County. As an amateur pilot myself, it’s encouraging to see how aviation will help the region grow and thrive.”

The airport serves corporate aircraft, as well as air cargo jet operations, and provides convenient access to US Highway 501 and the Research Triangle Region.
