Sheltair is at LABACE (Stand 4006) providing details on the recent completion of Phase I of its expansion at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport in Florida. The three-phase development project includes 134,806 sq ft (12,534 sq m) of premier hangar and office space on more than 11 acres (4.5 hectares) of land on the west side of the airfield.
This is the first general aviation facility to be constructed on the west side of the airport in more than a decade and has direct access to the new 8,000-foot runway currently under construction.
Sheltair (Booth No. 4253) wants NBAA attendees to know more about its property leasing opportunities, development and construction services. Since the mid 1980s Sheltair has developed, constructed and now manages more than 60 percent of all hangars and airside commercial office space at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (KFXE), one of the busiest general aviation airports in the U.S. Sheltair said that to date it has built more than 3 million square feet of aviation-related space at 19 properties in Florida, Georgia and New York. The company opens its 15th U.S.
With a keen eye on the growth of business aviation in Latin America and corresponding growth in traffic from that region through Florida, Sheltair announced this week at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) in São Paulo, Brazil, that it is expanding its facilities at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood (Fla.) International Airport.
Sheltair inaugurated its latest facility–at Northwest Florida Beaches Airport–last month. The aviation services provider had operated from a temporary trailer at the airport for the past year. The new 5,000-sq-ft executive terminal, built to LEED environmental certification standards, provides an airy nautical-themed passenger lobby, a conference room, a pilot’s lounge with shower, and a flight-planning area.
The Holland Sheltair Aviation Group, which operates 13 FBOs in Florida, New York and Georgia, announced that it has combined its aviation services segment, along with Sheltair Aviation Facilities, its property leasing unit and Holland Builders, its facility construction business, into one new brand, now known simply as Sheltair.
The Hiller Group-Chevron network has added seven more SheltAir Aviation Services FBOs to its portfolio. Including these locations, the Hiller Group will now supply fuel to 10 SheltAir facilities in the U.S. The recently added SheltAir FBOs are located at Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Panama City, St. Petersburg-Clearwater and Jacksonville, Fla.; La Guardia, New York; and Savannah, Ga.
After years of wrangling, SheltAir Aviation Services has opened its new FBO at Francis S. Gabreski Airport (FOK) in Westhampton Beach, N.Y. Part of the Holland Sheltair Aviation Group, which operates 13 facilities in New York, Florida and Georgia, the company has been at Gabreski since it acquired the FBO from the Long Island Jet Center in 2006.
Holland SheltAir Aviation Group has promoted 24-year company veteran John Schmatz to president and recently hired Daniel Walsh as COO of the 13-FBO chain. Walsh previously was vice president of the Tac Air aviation division for Truman Arnold Companies. The company also announced promotion of Michael Kolbert to CFO of Holland SheltAir and Todd Anderson to vice president of Florida real estate and properties.
