ABOUT RALEIGH EXEC
airport code KTTA: Total Triangle Access
Since opening its doors in October 2000 originally as the Sanford-Lee County Regional Airport RALEIGH EXEC has made a significant impact on aviation in the Research Triangle Region. Designated as a reliever for Raleigh-Durham International, the airport is home to corporate aircraft, aviation-related businesses, recreational aviators and an active flying club.
Located on more than 700 acres just off U.S. 1 at exit 76 (Farrell Road), the jetport is just 15 uncrowded miles from the Triangle Parkway — a section of Raleigh's outer beltline soon to be designated I-540 — providing easy access to the capital city, Cary, Durham and the Research Triangle Park.
RALEIGH EXEC serves corporate pilots from the rich manufacturing base in Sanford, as well as Triangle-area pilots wanting an easier, less-crowded alternative to Raleigh-Durham International.
Pilots enjoy a recently renovated, 6,500-by-100-foot runway with parallel taxiway and a weight capacity of 100,000 pounds. The airport has full lighting, signage and an automatic weather observation system (AWOS), instrument landing system (ILS), nondirectional beacon (NDB), ground communicator outlet (GCO) and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast system (ADS-B). With the ADS-B located on the airport grounds, pilots are able to monitor traffic on the ground as well as in the air.
Even casual guests appreciate the recently-constructed terminal, featuring a lobby that looks more like home than an airport. Conference rooms are available for those important meetings and rest lounges are available when you want comfort and solitude. The building even provides showers, with everything just steps from the reception area.
The airport offers full services, including Jet A and 100LL aircraft fuel, complete aircraft maintenance, avionics repair, pilot weather services, a flight school, secure hangars with limited-access gates, courtesy and rental automobiles, and catering.
