Triangle North Executive Airport[2] (IATA: LFN, ICAO: KLHZ, FAA LID: LHZ) is a county-owned, public-use airport in Franklin County, North Carolina, United States. It is located five nautical miles (9 km) southwest of the central business district of Louisburg, North Carolina.[1]

It was known as the Franklin County Regional Airport until November 2008, when the Board of Commissioners of Franklin County approved the new name.[3] As of February 2010, Federal Aviation Administration records give the airport's name as Franklin County Airport.[1]

The airport covers an area of 388 acres (157 ha) at an elevation of 369 feet (112 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 5/23 with an asphalt surface measuring 5,498 by 100 feet (1,676 x 30 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending July 1, 2008, the airport had 62,800 aircraft operations, an average of 172 per day: 96% general aviation and 4% military. At that time there were 65 aircraft based at this airport: 83% single-engine, 6% multi-engine, 2% jet and 9% helicopter.[1]
