GENEVA, SWITZERLAND / May 22, 2017 / GENERAL AVIATION NEWS – Representatives of the Sheltair team join Avfuel Corporation in booth G88 at EBACE 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland, to network with international operators, educating them on Sheltair’s array of services across its 17 FBO locations.

Most notably, six of the 17 locations (SAV, TPA, ORL, FLL, FRG and FOK) are undergoing hangar developments. The projects are now pre-leasing so operators can secure a priority space immediately.

The Sheltair SAV team in Savannah, Ga., commemorated the completion of its newest hangar with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 29—this hangar is already full and plans are underway for a third hangar, expected to be completed in the fall of 2018.

At its newest location in Tampa, Fla., Sheltair (TPA) began construction on a 32,000 square foot hangar, expected to be completed this fall.

Sheltair ORL in Orlando, Fla., finished Phase I of its development project this month, featuring two new hangar facilities totaling 22,600 square feet of hangar space and 3,600 square feet of office space, including state-of-the-art administrative support. Limited space is still available. Phase II of Sheltair ORL’s development project—scheduled to begin July 1—features a new, 30,000 square foot executive terminal to be completed within a year.

Sheltair FLL in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is on track to complete its Westside Hangar Complex expansion this fall. Situated outside the Lago Mar TFR zone and designated as a gateway airport, Sheltair FLL is the perfect South Florida destination when the president’s in town.

Hangars are also under construction at Sheltair FRG in Farmingdale, N.Y.—just a 12 minute helicopter ride to the heart of Manhattan. Sheltair FRG is a prime option for operators wanting to avoid taxiway delays and the congestion experienced at other New York metropolitan airports. The construction of two hangars totaling 70,000 square feet is expected to be completed this winter; pre-leasing is now available. 

Sheltair’s Westhampton Beach, N.Y., location (FOK) is also constructing hangars. Operators flying in for a summer in the Hamptons can’t miss the sight of a new, 25,000 square foot hangar complex taking shape at the FBO.  Sheltair FOK offers its operators flexible leasing terms for seasonal and yearly hangar space.  

In addition to its property developments, Sheltair also offers international operators the benefit of duty free shopping at three of its New York metro airports: Westhampton Beach (FOK), Farmingdale (FRG) and New York (JFK). Sheltair JFK also offers exterior aircraft cleaning while Sheltair LGA (La Guardia) now offers biometrics for U.S. clearance.

(Orlando, Florida) – On Thursday, May 18th at 12:00 p.m., Sheltair will 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.

Sheltair ORL Hangar Opening 2Sheltair ORL New Hangar Ribbon Cutting May18 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.”

Welcoming Sheltair’s investment

Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) Vice Chairman, Dean Asher stated, “Sheltair’s investment is a multimillion dollar vote of confidence in this airport and the Orlando metropolitan region. Sheltair continues to be a partner in our economic growth, underscoring the fact that central Florida is not only a vacation destination but a powerful and vibrant business center. General aviation helps power that growth and Sheltair sits at the center of that formula.”

Orlando has been ranked among the top ten in one annual survey while a KPMG report ranks it as second most competitive business location among large cities in the United States.

Sheltair’s current Orlando facility remains a defining standard for performance among FBOs, offering excellent customer service, superior ground support, first-class concierge services, complimentary interior cabin cleaning, catering, crew cars, passenger shuttle services, complimentary refreshments, wireless Internet, conference room, a flight planning and weather room and pilots lounge.
