W Aviation, already operating at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) since last fall from the former Execuport facility, expects to break ground this spring on a new FBO. Its current, temporary facility recently underwent a $250,000 refurbishment and is base for 16 turbine aircraft ranging from the first G650 in southern Florida to a King Air 90, as well as the 12-jet fleet of sister charter provider Windsor Jet. The company has acquired an additional seven acres of airport land to combine with its existing three-acre leasehold. The current facility includes a terminal and five hangars ranging in size from 25,000 sq ft to 20,000 sq ft to three 10,000-sq-ft hangars. Plans call for a two-phase construction project that will see the three smallest hangars torn down and replaced with four 20,000-sq-foot hangars, for an eventual total of 125,000 sq ft of aircraft storage. A 23,000-sq-ft terminal is also planned for the project’s second phase. The entire complex is expected to be completed in 2016.
