Sanford Raleigh Executive Jetport (NC) “to install electric aircraft/ground vehicle chargers”

North Carolina’s State Aviation News reports that the state took a step toward sustainable aviation with last week’s groundbreaking of the first electric aircraft chargers in North Carolina.

“The electric chargers were designed by BETA to be multimodal, meaning they support the charge of electric aircraft and electric cars and trucks at the airport,” said the report. “Two electric charging stations will be installed in early 2024 at Raleigh Executive Jetport in Sanford, the site of the groundbreaking ceremony….BETA Technologies, an electric aerospace company, will install the two multimodal charging stations to serve electric aircraft and ground electric vehicles. The site will include a Level-3 fast-charge Charge Cube, which will charge electric aircraft in under an hour, and an accompanying Charge Center where aircraft crew can rest. The site will also include a Level 2 car charger, which will be installed in the airport’s parking lot. The project required a significant expansion of the airport’s apron, where the charging stations will be located. The expansion of the apron, which NCDOT funded, was recently completed and is ready for additional construction.

“Electrification will be a key component of the state’s Advance Mobility NC strategic plan. It will leverage the work of NCDOT’s efforts to create a multimodal transportation system that improves the mobility of people and freight.
