FBO gets more space

PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Demand for private air travel at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport prompted fixed base operator Sheltair to seek for more space. At a meeting last week, the Airport Authority approved a new, larger lease agreement for Sheltair, which has provided general aviation services at the airport in West Bay, northwest of Panama City, since 2010. Sheltair's new lease adds about five acres of space, mostly paved ramp space, and shifts operations to the south. The FBO will give up a portion of land in the process, which will be marketed by economic development officials as a potential site for aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul companies. The Fort Lauderdale company operates 14 facilities in the U.S. (Source: News Herald, 09/28/14) Previous
