A new heliport is set to open this month in the Dallas suburb of DeSoto, Texas. Construction on the $5 million, 19-acre facility began last March and will include 25,000 sq ft of heated hangar space to accommodate 50 helicopters and more than an acre of concrete ramp. The 12,000 sq ft of terminal and office space will house businesses such as flight training providers, emergency medical services, law enforcement, charter and ENG operations. Jet-A and avgas will be available 24 hours a day from self-serve fuel islands. The facility will be managed by Sky Helicopters, which also operates the FBO at the Garland/DFW heliport approximately 30 miles away.
