AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 26, 2009

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Consent to Sublease agreement among the City of Leesburg, Greg Shaffer, Winton Douglas & Dustin Shaffer and Wingover Aerobatics, LLC for hangar space at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Consent to Sublease agreement.

 

Analysis:

Shaffer Aviation, Inc. wishes to sublease a portion of their corporate hangar located at 9020 Airport Boulevard to Wingover Aerobatics, LLC.  Dr. Kathy Hirtz, the managing member of Wingover Aerobatics, operated an acrobatic school in the State of Washington. She recently relocated her medical practice to the Villages and wishes to open a school here.

 

Staff feels an aerobatic school would fill a niche market that is gaining momentum in the aviation community and would be an asset to the airport.  The sublease will also result in increased utilization of space on the airport.

 

The sublease has been reviewed and approved by the City Attorney.  The Consent to Sublease was generated by the attorney’s office and includes stipulations that Wingover Aerobatics must comply with all terms of the original lease agreement for this site.

 

This agreement was not reviewed by the Airport Advisory Board (AAB).  The October 14th AAB meeting was cancelled due to lack of a quorum.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Consent to Sublease; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Approval of this Consent to Sublease agreement will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
