Houston Ellington Field, home to NASA’s C-9 “Vomit Comet” microgravity research airplane, is expanding to attract more general aviation activity by making previously inaccessible property available for development and building a new taxiway to accommodate more business jet operators.

A new charter operator, Bevco Ameritex, moved to the airport recently, and this month Rocket Man Aviation is set to open the airport’s second FBO, with a 17,500-sq-ft terminal building and hangar. Existing FBO Southwest Airport Services is putting the finishing touches on its new 35,000-sq-ft facility.
