ANNOUNCING THE OPENING OF OUR NEWEST LOCATION!

On August 6, 2019, we expanded Cape Fear Aviation Flight School to a second location - Harnett County Jetport. This is a big step for our school and an exciting move for our students and renters. Harnett County Jetport is located close to Raleigh and I-95 and they boast a newly renovated taxi ramp, a comfortable airport office with pilot's lounge/conference room/kitchen facilities, a long runway, well-lit night flying environment, and many more amenities.

We are very excited to continue offering our excellent services at two locations - we believe this will allow us to better meet the needs of our customers and provide flight instruction to even more people who want to learn to fly.
