Austin Executive Airport On Track For 2011 Opening

Construction Underway On FBO Terminal Building And Hangar

Construction crews have begun to pour concrete at Austin Executive Airport (KEDC) for the airport's new FBO, terminal building, and hangar. The 27,500-square-foot premier FBO terminal building, and 29,000-square-foot hangar will also feature a 140-by-85-foot canopy, just another in a series of upgrades and amenities pilots across the state will enjoy at Texas' newest airport.

Austin Executive Airport

Opened as Bird's Nest Airport in 1968 with a 1,500 foot runway, the site was purchased in 2007 by developer and pilot Ron Henriksen, who began the transformation into a corporate and general aviation facility 12 miles northeast of downtown Austin. Plans include a 6,025 foot runway along with the new FBO Terminal building, ramp, fuel farm, and corporate hangars which can accommodate aircraft as large as a Gulfstream V.

The airport is expected to in the second quarter of 2011. A live video feed of runway and hangar construction can be viewed online.

"Since purchasing the site in 2007, we have spent considerable time listening to pilots, the aviation community and the citizens of Austin to help us establish an airport unequalled in offering pilots a much-needed alternative to other over-crowded facilities," said Henriksen. "This brings us much closer to realizing our goals of a modern, first-class business aviation facility that will be a direct benefit to both the aviation community as well as the Austin area."

Andrew D. Perry, A.A.E, Vice President of Development for Austin Executive Airport said the new reliever airport will also be an economic draw for the Austin area and the state of Texas which has been trying to restore general aviation capacity to the Austin area for over a decade. "There is no question that there is a real need for a general aviation facility in Central Texas ," said Perry. "And we are looking forward to the economic boom such a facility can have on the larger community and to our state."  Perry said he is actively seeking aircraft maintenance, avionic and paint shops, along with other aviation businesses for the airport.
