What kind of "airport" are you looking for? Dare County Regional is on the north end of Roanoke Island is close by, just a few miles, but is a small uncontrolled facility. There is a little bit larger, but still uncontrolled facility in Currituck (Maple area), about 40-45 miles away. There are a lot of other airports of that sort within a couple hours drive of Wanchese. If you looking for a "real" airport, then Norfolk International is the closest. About 100-110 miles or so to the north, in Norfolk, Va. Hope this helps.

Dare County Regional and First Flight Airstrip are right on the island. Both are smaller facilities for private planes or your own charter. DCAP is closest if thats your question of all the airstrips.

As long as its not a Friday evening (weekenders) and Saturday or Sunday (renter check-in/check-out) 2 hours seems about right.

You could fly in to Greenville, NC. Also, about 2 hours from Wanchese and not too much traffic.

Are you talking regular commercial air travel or charter jet?
Greenville or Norfolk are the two closest commercial air ports.
If you fly to manassas or Dulles VA. There is a new commercial co flying regularly to Manteo I think 4-8 flights a week or more.
Contact Dare co airport they can help.

Norfolks closer , but RDU might have cheaper flights, enough that you could rent the car and drive to Wanchese.
