New hangar officially opens

MILTON, Fla. - The new aviation customer service hangar at the Peter Prince Airport in East Milton was officially opened Wednesday. Leonardo Helicopters will be the Santa Rosa County hangar's first occupant for the next two years as the company builds its 80,000-square-foot permanent maintenance facility at the Whiting Aviation Park next to Naval Air Station Whiting Field. Leonardo last year was selected by the Navy to replace the Navy's training helicopter fleet of TH-57s with TH-73A aircraft during the next four years, a contract worth $648.1 million.
