HEARING REQUIRED:  No Hearing Required

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

Pensacola Aviation Center (PAC) is the full-service Fixed Base Operator serving the Pensacola International Airport.  As a Fixed Base Operator, PAC is required to provide fueling, aircraft maintenance, pilot and passenger waiting areas, aircraft parking and storage, and a variety of other services to the operators of the privately and corporate owned aircraft using the facility.

 

To provide aircraft parking and storage, Pensacola Aviation Center currently manages various hangars on the Airport.  This includes 43 “T” hangars totaling 62,600 square feet that are used to house individual small single and twin engine aircraft, and four clear span hangars totaling 55,700 square feet that are used to house a number of medium sized single and twin engine aircraft.

 

The recently completed Master Plan reviewed all of the facilities on the Pensacola International Airport, and outlined those items needed to meet current and forecast demand.  The number of T hangars and clear span hangars was last expanded in 2008.  Given the growth in general aviation activity over the last eleven years, the Master Plan identified a current need for an increase in both types of facilities.

 

In lieu of providing these facilities itself, the City of Pensacola typically works with private entities such as Pensacola Aviation to fund, construct, and operate the various hangars and buildings required to accommodate the needs of the general aviation community.  In consideration of the development and to allow a company to amortize the investment, the City grants longer term leases.

 

To meet the current needs for expanded hangar facilities, Pensacola Aviation proposes to invest $2.9 million dollars into the development of both additional T hangars and an additional 20,000 square foot clear span hangar.  Construction would be completed within eighteen months.

 

To allow for the amortization of the investment, PAC has requested an extension to their lease agreement.  The proposed seventeen year extension would take the lease out to September 30, 2049.
