NetJets will remain in Columbus, Ohio, despite fierce competition from cities such as Raleigh, N.C.; Orlando, Fla.; and Fort Worth, Texas. CEO Richard Santulli said the fractional provider will create a $200 million campus that will include a new FlightSafety training facility and will more than double the size of NetJets’ current facility. Santulli expects at least another 800 jobs will be created. Ohio pledged around $100 million in incentives to keep the fractional provider in the Buckeye State. Of that, around $45 million came from the state and the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.
