The full-time professional flight instructors of WNC Aviation help aspiring aeronauts unfurl their wings and also refresh professional pilots on essential flying skills with a personal and career-training curriculum.

Chef Rob Keener and his accompanying culinary crew at Square 1 Cafe craft fresh, locally sourced comestibles into mealtime masterpieces for brunch, lunch, and dinner. A seasonal menu rotates through an assortment of appetizers, such as a baked-brie pastry puff, oozing with blackberry jam and crowned in candied nuts, and honey-drizzled fried green tomatoes. Hand-cut fry fences surround a Sq burger entree, built on a foundation of a patty fortified with gorgonzola steel beams and furnished with grenadine-poached onions, whereas blackberry barbecue and applewood bacon sheathe blackened chicken in the cheddar-covered Blackbird.

Though Square 1 Cafe's online menu is seasonally changing, this menu provides a list of regularly showcased items.
