Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Consent to Assignment of Lease at Leesburg International Airport

 

Analysis:

 

Mr. Ronn Walker owns the hangar at 32746 Echo Drive and operates a helicopter training school, Tropical Helicopter, Inc., from this site.  Mr. Walker wishes to sell the hangar and have the remainder of the lease assigned to Mr. Adam Callow.  Mr. Callow plans to continue to offer helicopter flight training from the facility.

 

The original lease for this site between the City of Leesburg and Florida Crushed Stone Company was approved on November 14, 1983.  Mr. Walker purchased the hangar in 2005 and the lease was assigned to him.  The original term of the lease was 25 years with a 5-year option.   The extension option was exercised by Mr. Walker on June 6, 2007; therefore, the expiration date of the lease is November 13, 2013.  The monthly lease payment at this time is $80.37 per month plus applicable taxes.

 

The Airport Advisory Board reviewed this Agreement at the June 20, 2007 meeting and recommended approval.

 

Options:

 

1.  Approve the Consent to Assignment of Lease; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
