Operator announces terminal

CRESTVIEW, Fla. -- Bob Sikes Airport’s fixed-base operator anticipates breaking ground on a $600,000 terminal by April. Jonathan Dunn, Emerald Coast Aviation’s president, said his company recently sent the project out to bid. The 5,600-square-foot terminal will replace a facility that Emerald Coast Aviation and Sunshine Aero, its predecessor, have used for decades. The single-story building will house a reception area, offices, a lounge, pilots' room with shower, a conference room and an outdoor enclosed courtyard overlooking the airport.
