Sheltair’s Newest Multimillion Dollar Hangar Project to be Opened at Orlando Executive Airport

On Thursday, May 18, Sheltair cut the ribbon at its grand opening ceremony for its latest newly completed hangar facility at Orlando Executive Airport (ORL) as part of the company’s ongoing strategy to build hangars that not only meet current demand but anticipate the future needs of its customers and the nation’s general aviation community.

Todd Anderson, Sheltair Senior Vice President for Real Estate and Development, stated, “This milestone represents the first phase of our expansion plans for our Orlando location, allowing us to open two (2) hangars totaling 22,600 square foot hangar with 3,600 square feet of office space that includes state-of-the-art administrative support. This $5.5 million Phase I also includes a new and spacious parking lot that will accommodate the not only the new growing ground transportation needs of our customers but provide adequate parking for the upcoming Phase II expansion plans.”

The Sheltair executive explained that Phase II, which is scheduled to start by July 1, 2017 and completed within a year, will see Sheltair build a new $8 million, 4-story executive terminal that dramatically expands on amenities offered its visitors, including a new FBO executive terminal, class A office space and a restaurant for passengers, crew and the general public.

Anderson continued, “Our $13.5 million of new capital investment is a strong and visionary recognition that Orlando Executive Airport will continue to expand, increase in operations and play a vital role within the corporate general aviation sector due to its location being only three miles from the business and financial center of Central Florida.  Additionally, Orlando Executive is the preferred airport for many traveling to Orlando’s downtown businesses, sports, performing arts and entertainment venues , Winter Park, University of Central Florida and its research and business parks. The need is obvious and the potential for long term steady growth is considerable.”
