North Carolina aviation has soared since the Wright brothers’ flight in Kitty Hawk on December 17, 1903. The economic impact of public airports in North Carolina is $52 billion per year, representing 9% of the state’s annual gross domestic product. Aviation accounts for more than 300,000 jobs.
Airports in the Triangle region of North Carolina are taking off as well. In 2019 the Raleigh Exec Jetport replaced its 3,000-SF terminal with a 15,000-SF building . The airport is designated as a reliever airport for Raleigh-Durham International and features a pilot lounge, conference rooms and observation deck.
McKim & Creed furnished civil engineering, landscape architecture and surveying services for the expansion and designed modifications to the existing parking lot at the terminal.
