Default KEHO

I flew into Shelby-Cleveland County (KEHO) a few months ago. A very nice field about 30 miles west of Charlotte. Might not be close enough for your needs?

IPJ is about 35 mins north. There really is no GA friendly airport IN Charlotte,but CLT and Wilson do pretty good at accommodating GA.

I agree with Tim. Flew the RV into CLT for a MNF game, was well cared for by Wilson, and they found us a discounted hotel room which offset most of the big airport pricing on fuel.

Look into KEQY. I've been there and it's about a 30 min drive into Charlotte as I remember, but not too bad.

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

Default Looks like Northeast of Downtown

I report to people in a Charlotte office on the northeast side of town off US-24 WWT Harris Blvd so I plan to visit with them at some point

Then JQF may be best option.. though EQY isn't a bad choice either..

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.
