57 Alpha Cafe - Rutherfordton, NC

Cafe on field. Open 10 am - 3 pm, Tuesday - Saturday. Great food, great atmosphere.

Arant Aviation Inc - Monroe, NC

Come see what a real grass strip is like. Under New Management, out with the old in with the new. Back to a fun place to fly. Private Airport.

BBQ in Lexington - Lexington, NC

Fun cross country to visit any of the dozen BBQ places around Lexington. Friendly airport, no parking fees, courtesy cars available. They do ask that you throw a couple bucks worth of gas in the car while out, small favor to ask for use of the airport I think and was happy to fill it up for them. I highly recommend Backcountry BBQ. 5 minutes from the field and some of the best BBQ I have ever had. Loaded up and flew some back to RDU as well. This will definitely be a return trip for me.

Cape Fear Regional Jetport - Oak Island, NC

Great Destination airport. Super supportive staff. Beach is less than two miles away. imediate access to Oak Island and downtown Southport and the ferry to Bald Head Island. Airport had couresy cars, and also a Hertz rental on field, Enterprize rental down the block. Several great seafood restaurants, BBQ and golf couses nearby. Several hotels and beach house rentals all year round. Very busy on 3-day holidays so plan ahead.

Concord Regional Airport - Concord, NC

Close to Mills Outlet mall, Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World, Lowes Motorspeedway. Herlockers is a good Burger place. Lots of good close restaurants. Crew cars available.

Crosswinds Cafe - Hickory, NC

Crosswinds Cafe is in the old terminal building. Just tell the tower you're there for the restaurant and they will park you in front of the old terminal. You'll park opposite the museum aircraft. If you need fuel tell them you want the FBO and then you just walk across the road to the restaurant. No frozen burgers here, they are made fresh and are great.

Dare County Regional Airport - Manteo, NC

Great Airport. Beach, picinic shelter and aquarium. Lost Colonly Play nearby. Downtown is a great place to walk beside the water and eat. At the south end of the island is where the fishing boats come in. Fisherman's Wharf is a really great seafood restaurant. Real fresh fish. Seafood shop below restaurant will pack your fish for trip home. Said they would leave a bushel of oysters at the airport if you call ahead.

First Flight - Kill Devil Hills, NC

Pay homage to the fathers of aviation. Coming into the field-you can't see it until you're right on it. Usually a crosswind, easy landing with deer all over (sometimes crossing the runway on landing), and plenty of tiedowns-bring your own rope if you're planning on stayin more than a few hours. There's only one tiedown with rope there. Free admittance into the park, AOPA just put up a new facility there for pilots-entry code is VFR sqwak code. It's a great place-only way to get to the beach is by bringing your own bikes. Dare County (MQI) is a 3 minute flight from FFA, and they have a crew car where you can go into town and get some grub. If you like seafood-go to stripers grille in-town-ask the FBO where it is(right next to McDonalds).

Forest Ridge Mountain Home - Jefferson, NC

Mountain airport with friendly people. Marvin Stump will drive you to one of NC's finest restaurants, Shatley Springs. Be sure and re-check your WEIGHT & balance before departing. For overnight stay, e-mail hawkinrl@bellsouth.net. Other restaurants are located nearby. View work by talented local artists featured in numerous area galleries.

Harnett Regional Jetport - Warren Aviation - Erwin, NC

Fresh Baked Otis Spunkmeyer Cookies is just one attraction of this amazing airport which is packed with true Southern hospitality! Every 1st and 3rd Friday, the airport fires up the grill and offers a free lunch for visitors. In addition to the great fuel prices and staff members, they will shuttle you to Keith Hills Country Club for a round of golf or to Cape Fear River Adventures for a canoe trip.
