Currituck Regional Airport (ONX) is a publicly owned, business and general aviation airport located 40 miles south of Norfolk, VA and 30 miles north of the Outer Banks resort communities in North Carolina. 

Our attractive coastal location in close proximity to world-class beaches, golf, hunting and fishing make ONX a popular destination for charter and corporate flights.

Pilots and passengers to Currituck Regional Airport are welcomed by a courteous, professional staff into modern terminal facilities featuring a dedicated pilot’s lounge, business center, free WIFI, DirecTV, catering service, courtesy vehicles and Enterprise Rent-a-Car service.

Did we mention a stop at ONX is a great value, too? There are no landing fees or overnight ramp fees, and we offer some of the lowest Jet-A and AvGas prices on the East Coast.

Yet while working to meet the growing everyday needs of our transient and based operators, Currituck Regional Airport is also emerging as a leader in aviation workforce development and aerospace site selection in North Carolina.

ONX Economic Impact

  • Adds $10.06 million a year to Currituck County’s economy.
  • Produces $254,000 annually in state and local tax revenue.
  • Has generated 40 jobs with a total payroll of $2.16 million.
  • Generates about 25,000 visitors a year from business and leisure air travel. 

Our airport is one of 16 regional/business and general aviation airports in North Carolina to have earned the “Red Airport” designation, the highest classification for a noncommercial service airport. The recent move up was due to increased aviation activity, county economic factors, potential growth (county and aviation) and proximity to aviation-industry friendly elements.

ONX and Currituck County are nestled in the middle of a significant Mid-Atlantic defense and aerospace corridor of major military installations, UAS training facilities and private aviation companies. This cluster and its innovations are constantly generating a demand for workforce and site use opportunities.

In fact, Currituck County has invested $15 million in capital projects that will expand ONX’s capabilities to help meet increased general aviation demand – and pursue economic development opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic defense and aerospace corridor:

2013

  • Currituck County and College of the Albemarle opened the $7.1 million, 40,000- SF Regional Aviation & Technical Training Center at ONX, a facility providing FAA-certified Airframe & Power-plant certifications as well as avionics, composites, CNC-machining and design training.
  • Currituck County opened Maple Commerce Park, a $5 million, 85-acre shovel-ready industrial park adjacent to ONX airport, providing aviation-related companies with sites with direct access to ONX and COA aviation training facility.

2014

  • ONX Fuel Farm to undergo full refurbishment, including the installation of new fuel pumps and safety hardware.

2015

  • Currituck Regional Airport began construction on a $3 million southern parallel taxiway, connecting Runway 5 to the terminal and fuel farm areas.
