Staff recommends approval of the Consent to Sublease agreement with Skybolt Aeromotive Corporation
February 12, 2007, the City Commission approved a Consent to Sublease agreement between Skybolt Aeromotive Corporation and Mr. William C. Boughan /d/b/a Jet War Bird Maintenance, LLC. The Sublease between Mr. Boughan and Skybolt Aeromotive expired July 31st 2007. The new lease between Mr. Boughan and Skybolt Aeromotive commences July 1, 2007 and ends July 31, 2008. Mr. Boughan’s health issue delayed presenting the Sublease and Consent to Sublease to the Airport Advisory Board and City Commission.
Jet War Bird Maintenance, LLC, buys surplus Russian designed military training aircraft from Czechoslovakia and modifies them to meet FAA approval for flight in the United States. As the name of the company implies, Jet War Bird Maintenance, LLC, also performs demand maintenance and annuals to license the aircraft. The presence of Jet Ward Bird Maintenance, LLC, at the airport has been positive and adds to the diversity of services offered at Leesburg International Airport.
The Airport Advisory Board reviewed these agreements at their November 14, 2007 meeting and recommended approval.
1. Approve the Consent to Sublease agreement
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
Approval of this agreement will have no fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
