The Florida Energy and Aerospace Technology Park is an ideal destination for aerospace and light-sport aircraft companies.
Located 15 minutes from Leesburg International Airport, this center for high-tech commerce is ideal for research and manufacturing within close proximity of major transportation hubs like Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami. Aviation can benefit from 300 VFR days a year and a pleasant average annual temperature of 70 degrees.
Affordable leases and prime development property are within convenient access to major transportation corridors such as Florida's Turnpike and U.S. Highways 27 and 441.
Workforce development is supported by key educational partnerships with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Lake-Sumter Community College and local public schools.
Park plans include grass and paved airstrips as well as an LSA business development incubator providing joint-use production equipment, facilities, business assistance and training to help small companies grow. Leesburg offers a full array of public utilities including electric, natural gas, high-speed fiber-optic communications, water, wastewater and reuse for irrigation.
The technology park will include a light-sport aircraft complex planned with paved and grass runways to accommodate different types of aircraft. Each will be 2,500 feet long - ideal for smaller planes - and will be dedicated to aviation and aerspace tenants of the technology park. Buildings will have taxiway access, and an LSA business incubator will feature joint-use production equipment, fabrication facilities and business assistance and training to help small companies grow.
