I agree with the comments above.
EQY (Monroe) is great if you are meeting on the SE side of town.
IPJ (Lincolnton) or 14A (Lake Norman) are great if you are going to the Lake Norman area.
AKY (Gastonia) for the west side. EAA 309's chapter hangar is there, so contact them. You might be able to store your plane inside, if they have room.
UZA (Rock Hill) on the south side.

JQK (Concord) Stay away, just stay away. They have grown into a jetport for the NASCAR teams and don't want anything to do with small airplanes. I used to go there in my Tcraft many years ago to get a Coke and hang out but not any more.

Good luck and have a good trip!
I forgot about 14A Lake Norman - awesome place and friendly folks, that would be the best option for Harris Blvd north of Charlotte.

Default CLT

I'm based at friendly KUZA, Rock Hill, SC, just south of Charlotte. Many RV's and other experimentals...Home to EAA Chapter 961.
Well maintained 5000' runway with RNAV & ILS approaches. Lots of ramp space. FBO has a newish crew car.
Can't offer any space in my hangar, unfortunately.

That' s so incorrect! KLKR, KUZA, KEQY, KJQF, KAKH All super GA friendly....

Wilson in KCLT? Sure. Nice as well but you will pay fr it
