The FAA has determined that a proposed privately funded business aviation airport west of Houston is “objectionable” because it would create overlapping traffic patterns with existing airports, including some private strips and the Class B airspace surrounding George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). Still, developer Ron Henriksen of Houston vowed last month to realign the 7,000-foot single runway to assuage the FAA’s concerns.
Arnoni Aviation of Houston has expanded its landing gear and accessory shops by moving them to a 25,000-sq-ft facility adjacent to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. The new location includes more than 10,000 sq ft of environmentally controlled shop space. Planned expansion in Arnoni’s growing component overhaul services prompted the move.
