Staff recommends approval of the Consent to Sublease agreement.
Penny Wilson owns the hangar at 8900 Airport Boulevard and currently operates Triangle Aviation, Inc. from that site. Triangle Aviation operations include flight training and flying fire patrol for the United States Forestry Service. Ms. Wilson would like to sub-lease the portion of this hangar that is not used as office space to Av-Mech, LLC.
Av-Mech, LLC is an aircraft maintenance business, primarily working with composite-type aircraft. The company has been operating out of the Douglas/Shaffer Hangar at 9020 Airport Boulevard; however, that hangar has been sold and is no longer available for their use.
Av-Mech, LLC has been a good airport tenant. The company offers a service at the airport that is unique, i.e., repair of composite type aircraft instead of aluminum. Their business adds to the diversity of services offered at Leesburg International Airport.
This agreement was reviewed and recommended for approval by the Airport Advisory Board at the August 10, 2011 meeting.
1. Approve the Consent to Sublease agreement; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Approval of this agreement will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
