Flightline Group Has Lofty Plans
Flightline Group's $24 million, four-year, multi-building development project at its Tallahassee (Fla.) Regional Airport (TLH) headquarters will soon begin to take form. By next month, construction crews will start building the company's 26,000-sq-ft regional service center, which will maintain general aviation aircraft and the emerging very light jets when it opens later next year. Concurrently, Flightline is redeveloping Compass Pointe (the old airline terminal building) into a multi-use aviation facility, with DayJet already signed to use part of the space for employee training. Since the company has been selected as the HondaJet Southeast dealer, it is also building a customer-centric, state-of-the-art dealership facility at TLH to sell and service the Honda twinjets when they start entering service in 2010. If that wasn't enough, Flightline also has plans to construct a hotel adjacent to the HondaJet Southeast dealership. But the company's investment won't be limited to TLH; Flightline was just awarded the HondaJet Northeast dealership and it is currently scouting a location within 150 miles of New York City for this new facility.
