Kitty Hawk – Kill Devil Hills, NC


North Carolina Slope Flying Sites


The Wright Brothers Memorial is located in Kill Devil Hills, NC near Kitty Hawk. The entrance is just off 158. It seemed an appropriate place to fly. The hill was usable when the wind was out of the northeast. The back side may work for southwest. Actually, depending on the plane, almost any wind angle has potential.

Several memorial visitors were interested in the plane and I flew for about 30 minutes in a northeast wind.


I did not see any rangers when I was there, however, I was later told by another pilot that he had been told to stop flying by a ranger.



These are locations we have had the privilege to fly. Some may have access restrictions.
Check with local flyers for information.
