Flightline Group, Inc. told ANN this week work is set to begin
on the company's new 26,000 square-foot regional service facility
... which Flightline says is the largest general aviation
development and construction project ever undertaken at the
Tallahassee Regional Airport.
The beginning of work on the regional service facility marks the
launch of a long-term site plan that includes $20,000,000 in
additional development investment by Flightline Group and their
city and airport partners over the coming four years.
"Bringing world-class aviation service and facilities to
Tallahassee, the State of Florida and the Southeastern US for all
aircraft owners and operators has been among our highest priorities
consistently throughout our 25 year history," said Mac Langston,
Chairman and CEO of Flightline Group. "This new facility will help
redefine services provided to general aviation in the region. We
are grateful to our tremendous staff, industry and airport
partners, community leadership, and to our dedicated customers for
making it possible."
Sporting the obligatory golden shovels, Flightline
representatives officially broke ground on the site three months
ago. When complete, the facility will maintain general aviation
aircraft and the emerging new generation of light jets, and will
include high-speed and latest-technology communications and
management capabilities and will feature a state-of-the-art parts
sales service and technical library.
In the coming weeks, crews will begin to prepare the site for
full-construction by expanding access and parking for the facility,
bringing the site up to the latest EPA and state environmental
codes, installing under-ground electric and fiber-optic
communications provisions, and expanding the airport security area
and fencing to accommodate the new facility's needs.
Flightline Group is an approved service organization for Piper,
Cessna, and Cirrus Design.
"The new regional service facility is an excellent example of
Flightline's dedication to continuing to raise the bar on aviation
services, as symbolized by our rich 25 year heritage" said C.
Daniel Langston, Flightline's President. "The new regional service
facility marks the first in our four-year, $20 Million development
plan at TLH, which will, upon completion, set a new standard for
business and personal aviation in the industry."
The completed development plan also includes a training facility
and Center of Excellence for DayJet, the sales and service facility
for HondaJet SouthEast, expanded on-airport business facilities,
and a business-class hotel.
