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.”

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.”
