The airport is equipped with an Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS), a suite of sensors that measures, collects and broadcasts weather data to help meteorologists, pilots and flight dispatchers prepare and monitor weather forecasts, plan flight routes, and provide necessary information for correct takeoffs and landings.

Minute-to-minute updates are available to pilots by VHF radio at 119.775. Each hour AWOS data is available to off-site users by telephone at 252-453-8939.

Height Restrictions

In May 2001, the County implemented a height restriction zoning ordinance to protect the airport's airspace. The ordinance restricts the height of any new construction within certain defined zones around the airport.
The ordinance contains provisions that prevent the construction of towers or other obstructions to the airport's airspace and imaginary surfaces as adopted from findings contained in the 2000 Airport Layout Plan Update.


With a grant from the NC Division of Aviation, our runway has been extended to 5,500 feet. The Runway asphalt/concrete surface is 5,500 feet by 150 feet and open to the public.
