Congressman Ander Crenshaw today (6/24) joined city, county, and state officials in highlighting the tremendous economic growth opportunities at Cecil Airport at the official groundbreaking for Flightstar's Hangar 935.
"With room to expand services and add 250 new employees, Flightstar will shine brighter than ever into Northeast Florida's economic future," said Crenshaw, who attended the groundbreaking on Monday morning. "That's a win-win for the region's economy and the commercial airline industry that Flightstar serves."
"The State Department of Transportation and the Jacksonville Aviation Authority together with Cecil Airport, city, county, and other state officials have highlighted what Cecil has to offer and have dedicated the financial resources to making growth happen," Crenshaw continued. "That means companies like Flightstar want to locate in Jacksonville and be a part of Cecil's success story."
Flightstar, founded in 2000 and based at Cecil Airport, provides maintenance and repair services to the commercial airline industry. The company is expanding its services at a new 150,000 square hangar. The move will allow the company to expand its service and employee an additional 250 people.
