A Pilots Dream
In February 2000, Tom Brady, a pilot, had the vision to create an airpark for fellow pilots. With a lot of persistence and positive attitude, Tom, was able to see his vision become a reality.
Brady Landing Airpark is a pilot's dream. We are a through-the-fence community, having access to the Currituck County Regional Airport. Stepping out of our homes, into our hangars, taxing down the private taxiway in our planes and out onto the county's runway and taking off for whatever destination we choose. Ah, life couldn't get any better than that. Oh wait, did I mention that the runway is 5500' long? That Avgas and Jet Fuel are available at the airport? Ok so now life couldn't get any better than that.
We are also having a lot of growth in the area. The red arrow shows our new Emergency Management Building and towards our sports park.
Read what one of our pilots has to say:
Weather was a big factor in the final decision to settle in Currituck County. It is far enough south to have mild winters and far enough north to have pleasant temperatures. The wind here is frequently right down the runway, which takes the work out of landings. I can think of only 2 times in the last 10 years that there was enough ice on the runway to be a concern and for some reason a lot of the storms seem to go around us.
There are some other factors that come into play, especially for a jet. There are 3 instrument approaches with no obstructions on either end. The runway is long, one of the longest in the country for an airpark. The HOA has no restrictions on jet powered planes and the runway is publicly owned so there are no maintenance fees.

Living in the airpark brings a sense of community with fellow pilots.
Through-the-fence access to a county owned and operated airport. A runway that is 5500' long and has Avgas and Jet Fuel.
