The Currituck Regional Airport is a publicly owned General Aviation airport that is open to the public located in the northeastern region of North Carolina, approximately 46 miles south of the South Hampton Roads area of Virginia and 25 miles northeast of Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

Airplane at the Currituck County Regional AirportOriginally constructed during War World II as a military installation, the airport operations were later taken over by the County. For many years just a few general aviation enthusiasts used it. However, during the mid W's, as Currituck County continued its dynamic growth, interest in the Airport has grown from a few based aircraft to approximately 34-based aircraft.

The growth rate of our Airport is expected to increase dramatically in the next several years, and the County has planned for the increase demands in its Airport Layout Plan Update, a 20-year Airport Improvement Program. This plan has four development phases:

  • 0-5 years (Phase I) --- A NEAP Environmental Assessment has been completed for Phase I projects.
  • 6-10 years (Phase II)
  • 11-20 years (Phase III)
  • and +20 year (Ultimate) development  
To improve the safety of aircraft operations and the ability of the airport to accommodate and attract business aircraft, the County has extended the runway to 5500' and constructed a terminal building.

Providing airport infrastructure to support economic development and increase the business tax base in the county is a high priority. The County recognizes that providing up-to-date airport facilities that can accommodate corporate aircraft is vital to attracting new and expanded industry.

Overnight grass and paved tie-downs are available without charge.

Hang Gliding

Fly to altitudes of 2000 feet or higher with a Kitty Hawk Kites certified instructor. The views of Currituck Sound, the ocean, and the surrounding countryside are breathtaking. Once you are released from the tow plane, the only sounds you will hear are your instructor and the wind flowing around you. These elements - combined with stalls, dives, and turns - are sure to make tandem hang gliding a most exciting and memorable experience of your visit at the Currituck Regional Airport.
