175 BUSINESS VIEW MAGAZINE VOLUME 8, ISSUE 12 Triangle North EXECUTIVE AIRPORT Oh, the possibilities… J ust north of North Carolina’s thriving capital city of Raleigh, Triangle North Executive Airport (KLHZ) is making great strides as a regional asset. The airport is strategically located right in the heart of what is known as the Research Triangle, an area which is blessed with a number of outstanding universities. It is also one of the fastest developing locales in the country, with businesses and industries moving in at a steady rate. Triangle North Executive Airport is owned by Franklin County, which sits geographically above the metro cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. According to Airport Director, Bo Carson, this has meant a large influx into the region. He reports, “We’re seeing a lot of people locating here along with their aircraft as it is a strategic location for those looking to access the Research Triangle Region.” Currently, KLHZ is home to roughly 130 aircraft. Following the nation-wide trend, the airport has a waiting list for hangars, T-hangars, tie- downs, and on the grass. Of note, 100 people are on the waiting list for T-hangar space. Carson acknowledges, “We get one to two calls a week for people looking to move into the Research Triangle region and have access to their aircraft here.”
