Sunstate Aviation Builds New Facility At Kissimmee Gateway Airport

Flight School Grows, Offers Advanced Options To Pilots, Students, Airport

SunState Aviation is replacing its current facility at Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM) with a new, 16,000-square-foot building with a grand opening projected for Fall 2012. Construction began early this month, and the new facility will be dedicated mostly to expansion of the flight school's hangar for aircraft maintenance, but will also include enhancements to its training center with larger office and classroom spaces, a sandwich and pilot supply shop, observation decks, a simulator room with state-of-the-art training devices and an FAA testing center.

"City of Kissimmee is very pleased SunState Aviation is taking this bold step with us, and we look forward to announcing a specific date for the grand opening of the facility in a few months," says Terry Lloyd, director, Kissimmee Gateway Airport.
 
SunState Aviation's architecturally unique facility will set the tone for redevelopment of the Airport's southeast quadrant, an area with facilities dating back to 1970. This area includes a proposed site for the Airport's replacement control tower, a project under preliminary review by the FAA. Further redevelopment of the area will happen as current Airport leases expire. (Image provided by SunState Aviation)
