    I have around 90 hours of time building to do toward my commercial. Any fun airports to visit within 130-150 nm of the Charlotte area?

    Brewpub on the field at KCUB (Columbia Owens) but you won't get the whole experience if you want to fly back the same day.:)

    I have family that lives right across the street from Billy Mitchell! That’s definitely in the plans as is landing at First Flight. And as a bonus Concord (JQF) to Billy Mitchell is 250 nm straight line distance on the nose so I can use that for my commercial long cross-country!
