FBO seeks more space

PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- Relocation of the Panama City–Bay County International Airport to West Bay, further from Panama City itself, hindered general aviation activity. But officials at the new airport's fixed-base operator (FBO) are seeing improvement and now need more space. Sheltair provides services for general aviation at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, including fuel services, airplane storage and other ground support services. Thanks to steady customer growth, Sheltair is now seeking to significantly increase the amount of land leased from the Airport Authority. The request will go before the authority next month. Sheltair, a Fort Lauderdale-based company, operates 14 facilities across the U.S., with locations in Florida, Georgia and New York. (Source: News Herald, 07/30/14)
