About Us

The Cape Fear Flying Club was founded in September 2013 and is based at Modern Aviation FBO at Wilmington International Airport (ILM).  Modern Aviation is a full-service, state of the art FBO with over 10 acres of ramp space.


The club currently has 3 Diamond Aircraft and nearly 40 members. Two of our aircraft are hangared and one is tied down on the ramp at Modern Aviation. 

Our Mission

The mission of the Cape Fear Flying Club is to provide a venue for members to actively participate and share their collective passion for aviation and flight by:

  • Providing members with safe, modern, technically advanced, and well maintained aircraft to fly

  • Providing opportunities to advance members' knowledge, safety and piloting skills

  • Providing the camaraderie and sharing of experience with fellow members

  • Encouraging club members to participate actively to ensure the long term strength of the club

  • Encouraging club membership interaction with the general aviation community

Flying for Fun: Are You Ready to Take Off?

Climb into a plane and fly off for a weekend visit with family and friends. Soar above your hometown, seeing streets and landmarks in entirely new ways. Or simply enjoy the serenity and silence of your own high-altitude "Zen".


Flying for a Career

Many aspiring pilots have dreams of taking their passion for aviation and making it into a career. The good news is that the outlook has never been better for hopeful commercial pilots. In 2018, Boeing projected a demand for 790,000 pilots over the next 20 years.
