Sheltair upgrades services at Long Island MacArthur Airport
Sheltair will upgrade their FBO at Long Island MacArthur Airport. The company is spending a total of $1.1 million at the facility.
Todd Anderson, senior vice president of Real Estate & Development at Sheltair said: “General aviation serves as a crucial transportation link for Long Island businesses and the economy as a whole with Long Island MacArthur Airport playing a vital role in supporting that function. Whether it is an international corporate jet arriving with executives to close a deal or an entrepreneur flying in to meet with his investor, one cannot overstate the role of general aviation. Our sustained commitment to serving that segment of the aviation community continues to be self-evident through our investment underway at Long Island MacArthur as well as our other properties in the New York metro area.”
Sheltair has begun a number of infrastructure projects at Long Island MacArthur that include upgrades to two hangars, improved drainage, updated customer parking, the repaving of ramp and tie down areas as well as the removal of fuel tanks.
These investments come soon after the ongoing modernisation of their hangar at Republic Airport in East Farmingdale, Long Island.
“Let there be little doubt that our business decisions are in response to Governor Andrew Cuomo signing The Aviation Jobs Act which significantly reduces taxes on aviation related sales and maintenance in New York. As a result, expect Sheltair to invest more in our New York infrastructure in the months and years to come,” added Anderson.
Sheltair also provides FBO support at JFK and LaGuardia and continues to expand in other states including Florida and Georgia.
