Why choose Cape Fear Flying Club?

  • Diamond aircraft are some of the safest general aviation aircraft ever produced, as published by Aviation Safety Magazine.

  • We are conveniently located at Wilmington International Airport, a Class D airspace with great runways (8,016 x 150 ft.; 7,754 x 150 ft.), an operating control tower, and approach/departure control.

  • Our aircraft are modern, composite aircraft (DA40s are 2008 models, DA20 is 2004), offering modern avionics and equipment.

  • The Diamond DA40s offer 135-145 knot cruise speeds, reducing your overall cost per mile.

  • The aircraft sip fuel when leaned properly, often consuming only 8-10 gallons per hour during cruise flight.

  • Our aircraft are hangared at Modern Aviation (formerly Air Wilmington), a first-class FBO where you will receive red carpet service. With a simple phone call, the aircraft are pulled out to the flight line, fueled, and are awaiting your arrival. 

  • The DA40s are hangared, keeping the planes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

  • N829DS is AIR CONDITIONED for those hot, muggy days!

  • We service our aircraft using the most highly rated maintenance, avionics, composite, engine and prop shops.

  • The club follows rigorous 50-hour and 100-hour progressive maintenance inspections, even though they are not required by the FAA. This preventive maintenance strategy versus deferred maintenance means our dispatch rates are as high as possible.

  • Want to take an overnight or weekend trip? It's ok in our club with low suggested minimum of just two flight hours per day (some exceptions apply).

  • Advertised club events and available seats for passengers. Need a safety pilot? A member has you covered!

  • Club insurance policy is better than most, offering $1 million coverage on all of our airplanes and $100K per passenger sub limit. 

  • The DA40s are equipped with best in class G1000 avionics, including features such as GFC700 autopilot, Synthetic Vision, Traffic and Terrain Awareness, XM Weather Datalink and XM Music!
