HOUSTON – Texas aviation enthusiast and businessman Ron Henriksen is overseeing the construction of what he’s calling the world’s largest FBO arrival canopy.
Measuring over 32,800 square feet, the canopy is part of the current construction of Henriksen Jet Center at Houston Executive Airport (TME) in west Houston. Weir Enterprises is building the canopy as part of ongoing construction of the 22,500-square-foot FBO terminal building ,which is expected to be completed and open for business in February 2013.
Henriksen is the force behind the opening of Houston Executive Airport in 2007, and Austin Executive Airport in 2011. A former commercial pilot, Henriksen privately funded both airports.
“Texas continues to be a leader in the nation for aviation expansion and opportunities,” said Henriksen. “We’ve seen robust growth in both Houston and Austin, and it’s exciting to be involved in an industry that provides jobs, creates and retains new businesses, and has such a positive impact on the community. Houston Executive Airport’s upgrades will directly benefit business in our city for decades to come.”
