Groundbreaking Ceremony Marks the Start of Construction, Funded In Part by City Incentives at KISM
It’s official! Mach 1 Aviation has broken ground at our airport. The City of Kissimmee hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for Mach1 Aviation yesterday. This marks the official start of construction on the company’s hangar, which will be the first to be constructed in our Airport Business Airpark. Mach1 Aviation will provide helicopter training and maintenance and additional space to lease to other aviation companies. The company was eligible for economic development incentives as a City Quality Targeted Industry (QTI) company. This $5 million project is expected to be completed within the next 12 to 18 months. The Mach 1 Aviation hangar will become the largest at the airport upon its completion.
“It is with great appreciation and honor to recognize Mach1 Aviation’s significant investment in the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. This project will assist in meeting the demand for larger aircraft storage space and promoting business activity. As the first hangar to be constructed in the Airport Business Airpark, this first-class facility sets the bar for future hangars planned in the Airpark and the Airport,” said Shaun Germolus, Aviation Director at Kissimmee Gateway Airport. Congrats to Mach 1 Aviation and the city’s economic development team for making this project a reality!
