KHNZ: Henderson-Oxford Airport

The Henderson-Oxford Airport (HNZ) is within an hour drive from Durham, Raleigh, Wake County, and the RTP (Research Triangle Park), North Carolina.

Located just 4 miles off I-85 at exit 206, the airport is across the Granville County line in North Carolina, and is owned by the City of Oxford, County of Granville, City of Henderson and the County of Vance.

In addition to general aviation traffic, the airport serves a number of corporate aircraft from companies such as Georgia Pacific, Lowes, Hendrick Motor Sports, Revlon, and Variety Wholesales (formerly Roses). The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Young Eagles meet at the airport twice a year, and the US Marshall Service uses the airport when prisoners are being transferred to and from the federal prison in Butner, NC.

If you are coming in from out of town, a number of reasonably priced hotels are within a short drive of the airport, and the beautiful Kerr Lake offers over 850 miles of wooded shoreline for outdoor recreation and camping.
