Staff recommends approval of the second lease amendment to the contract with Winton Douglas and Greg Shaffer at Leesburg International Airport.
On the April 14, 2003, the Sims family assigned the lease for the corporate hangar at 9020 Airport Boulevard to Winton Douglas. Subsequently, on November 8, 2004, the City approved an amendment to allow additional activities including aircraft storage; aircraft brokering; full-service aircraft maintenance (excluding level 2 maintenance); and the use of approximately 5,000 square feet for a custom art framing business.
On April 24, 2006, the City Commission approved an Assignment of Lease between Winton Douglas and Greg Shaffer recognizing Mr. Shaffer as co-owner of the facility. Mr. Douglas and Mr. Shaffer are now requesting a Second Amendment to Lease to allow the following commercial activities:
Approval of this Second Amendment to Lease will maximize use of the hangar. Mr. Douglas and Mr. Shaffer will be able to offer services that are currently not available at Leesburg International Airport. The services include rides and instruction in a 1942 Sterman Biplane; rides and instruction in a 1940 vintage Piper J-3 Cub; and pilot training in tail wheel type aircraft.
The Airport Advisory Board reviewed this agreement at their February 21st meeting and recommended approval.
1. Approve the Second Amendment to Lease
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Approval of this lease amendment will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
